small Wat with great history around it.
the Wat is small and covered wholy by the tree that also now support the structure.
the Wat have status of the King Taksin soldiers who fought against Burmese during
the Ayuthaya period. There is also very nearby a new Chinese Temple dedicate to
King Taksin who was from Chinese origin.
Also at site there is nice small shrine to memory Princess who was hidden as boy
soldier and fought also the Burmese - some legend story is well marked in English

We went here as part of our floating market tour. We spent less than 30 minutes here since it is just a small temple that has a tree growing above it. It is quite unique since no other temple in Thailand is like that.
There was not much else to see though. People come here to pray, and there are statues outside.

No need for donations, but with the experience of being given sheets of gold to stick onto the buddha statues (for good luck), you might would want to.

Truly worth the experience.

This place is worth a visit. There are some interesting ruins to see at the base as you begin your climb to the summit (short walk). You walk through lush tropical gardens on your way up. There is a Buddha housed in a structure at the top, and magnificent panoramic of Bangkok to enjoy.

In the morning I visited the train market. That day it rained so hard it could rattle the bones. This was the second stop. A really unusual and cool place that I was glad to get to see! The highlight is a small temple build amid the snaking roots of a tree. It looks like something out of Indiana Jones. The rest of the temple has statues of men engaged in martial arts and a lot of rooster statues! It's an odd place but definitely worth your time.

The temple inside of the banyan tree is fascinating. The temple is small, but really pretty with bold and vibrant colors. Nice experience.

Followed Klook tour and this temple was one of the stops in the itinerary.

This temple was apparently built during the Thai -Burma war and there was a Buddha inside this trees wrapped synagogue like. The Buddha inside the synagogue is covered with gold leaves stick by devotees for blessing and prosperity.

There were lots of stories told by our tour guide to us. There is also a female mannequin which some devotees prayed to. Our tour guide mentioned something about a spirit in the mannequin which the devotees pray to for blessings and protection.

If you walk around the compound, you’ll discover a stable of horses where you can actually feed them at the cost of THB5 as donation. The horses were adorable!

We had two mini-busses of friends who booked a private tour to see the floating market and the railway market at Maeklong. After our tour to the floating market we had time to spare as we needed to wait for a certain timing to see the train and we came here.

One of the main attraction of this temple is the trees roots growing around the temple which was pretty neat and great place for photo op. This place is also historical and involves thier popular King Taksin from the late 1700s. Also not to miss the statues of the warriors doing muay thai exercise on the edge of the temple grounds usually where the vans and mini-buses will park.
