This temple on Chumphon Road has a cave temple that we would expect to find in the basement or in a small mountain but which is actually inside a building. Completely artificial, it is still a surprising place. A new boat shape marble temple reminding the architecture of its predecessor was built to replace the original building which was ruined and can not be restored.
