The temple is famed for its beautiful Ubosot (ordination hall) and bell-shaped Chedi (or stupa),which is decorated with gold mirrors. Teak compartments, lying neatly in stacks, originate from the early Rattanakosin period.

Wat Ang Thong Worawihan is located on the east bank of the river, at 1 Tambon Bang Kaeo, Amphoe Mueang. The temple is open daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
