Wat Na-ram-t-v-puk-Sar-r (the name transliterated by myself) is located between the provincial capitals of Phitsanulok and Loei, just inside the Loei border. The temple is 'ancient', as I was told, but is clearly in the process of extensive refurbishment. At the time of my visit (March 2012) the roof of the main building was still under construction. The temple grounds hold the usual arrangement of Thai Buddhist architecture, but all is to a high standard, and very pretty.
During my visit there were several bus loads of tourist and school children at the wat. I suspect that when it is completed it will be an important destination in the region. Reached ~500m from main road. Waymark made at main entrance.
