“The temple was written to see Songkhla as a follow-up temple by Atdong Bang Kaeo built in the same way as the source of Nakhon Si Thammarat, but this place is better than the forgotten sanctuary of Phatthalung.”

Wat Khian Bang Kaeo is on Highway No. 4081, 7 kilometres past Khao Chaison district office, in the area of Ban Bang Kaeo at Km. 14. A left-hand road leads to the temple. Wat Khian is situated on the bank of Songkhla Lake. This old monastery has the sacred Phra That Bang Kaeo, built in the same style as Phra Maha That Chedi in Nakhon Si Thammarat but smaller. This is one of the oldest historical sites of Phatthalung, dating back to the early Ayutthaya period. It is believed that the temple area was once the site of Phatthalung town because many laterite ruins and Buddha images have been found here.
