The Wat Tham Khao Pun overlooking the Khwae Noi River is a Buddhist temple with nine rooms nestled inside a cave. The cave can be reached by hiking along the marked trail and as you enter, the labyrinthine stone passageways will leave you dumbstruck with the limestone stalactites. Only the fluttering of the bats in their colonies penetrates the silence inside the subterranean shrine. The Buddha statues inside the temple look magical in the light and shadowy ambience. After exploring the Wat Tham Khao Pun, as you lead towards the exit, you will notice the former Japanese Wartime Hospital chamber and the replica of the bamboo barracks where some informative display of the Prisoners-of-war are displayed.
