Buddhist Temples

Samut Songkhram Province

This Wat is situated in Bang Kung Military Camp, formerly the stronghold of King Taksin in his campaign against the Burmese forces after the establishment of Thon Buri as the new capital city. A structure of interest in the temple is an ancient temple building covered by trees such as papal and banyan, whose roots keep the falling structure intact. At present, Buddhist rites and rituals, such as ordinations, still take place inside the building.
A large Buddha image is enshrined in the hall, with traces of murals remaining.
