Wat Okat is located on the waterfront near the customs house. It is one of the most revered temples in the province. It contains two sacred Buddha images, Phra Tiew and Phraw Tiem. They are both made of wood but covered in gold. According to legend, the images were found floating across the river from Laos hundreds of years ago. They have an important bathing ceremony here every year during the sixth lunar month.
