Sim Isan – a term for northeastern ordination hall or Ubosot – is situated within Wat Pa Saeng Arun, Tambon Phra Lap. The Sim Isan’s outstanding features lie in its typical shape and style, solidity, shelter as well as beauty of the murals of Mudmi patterns of the province’s famous tie-dyed silk.
This has been intended for later generations to learn, treasure as well as conserve local architecture, in addition, to being a significant touristic site of the province.
To get there: From Amphoe Mueang Khon Kaen, take Highway No. 12 (Si Chan Road), which is a route to Kalasin province. About 6 kilometres you will find a Toyota showroom on the right side. Make a u-turn at this showroom to go inbound to Khon Kaen. Go straight for about 1 kilometre and turn left onto Rural Road. Keep going straight for another 300 metres and Wat Pa Saeng Arun is on the right.
