Wat Saam Prasob was built in 1950 and sunk in 1968 with My whole village who had to move on the hill where it is now after the construction of Khao Laem Dam. The temple is under the lake most of the year but during the dry season, he emerged with the lowering of the water level in the dam. It is more or less visible depending on the time of year, knowing that it is obviously more interesting when it is most clear towards the end of the dry season. You can get there by boat. Of longtails near [url = / a-voir/le-pont-mon-sangkhlaburi-203] My bridge [/ url], you offer a ride an hour to discover and see the surroundings.
Our photos were taken in late December, a year in which he particularly liked about Sangkhlaburi which explains why the Wat Saam Prasob is still far in the water.
