Presentation Wat Khao Tham Ma Rong

Thai name : วัดเขาถ้ำม้าร้อง
My opinion:
About 2km from Suan Luang Beach and 3 km from the town, this temple is known for its cave. But before you get to it you will find a classical temple. Follow the small road in the forest, you will cross a shelter for abandoned dogs and a small path that leads to a smaller cave, the Ploenchit cave. At the end of the street, there is a small shrine with a Fat Buddha. The Ma Rong Cave is just behind. It is composed of several underground chambers, one in particular, the leftmost chamber was converted into a temple. There is small platform with tiled hosting a reclining Buddha and several other sitting Buddha statues. In the right part of the cave you will find a few other statues.
