Witness the beautiful idols of Lord Buddha and other deities in the natural cave of Wat Tham Phra (Buddha Images Cave) which is settled adjacent to the Kok River. The idols that are found here are about 2500 years old. Sometimes you may find glimpse of many bats those live in colonies on the walls of the cave. You are supposed to take off your shoes before entering this sacred place. Swimming is allowed in the river. A riverside cottage is close by the Wat Tham Phra (Buddha Images Cave) for having your dinner.

Wat Tham Phra (buddha Images Cave) Reviews & Ratings
Hmm a quiet place for monk meditation inside a cave, worth to see in case you passing by, also there is a platform on the river side to enjoy the river view
An untouristy temple which is a rarity here. Clearly not well known about but it was very interesting, and a nice place to cycle or take a scooter out to from the city. The temple area is built into a cave with bats remaining in there. Free to visit and would recommend on a day of sight seeing
Scenic riverboat ride to an interesting but somewhat neglected wat. It could definitely use more love and attention.
Impressive cave. But to location a bit neglected. It needs a bit of a loving hand because the location is beautiful next to the river. A quick in and out.
The wat is a bit far from the center and quiet. When i was there, there was no one look after the place and the door was locked. If you walk inside the area, u’ll see there’s buddha statue at the riverside. The view and the atmosphere there was so good. And i had great time watching sunset there. Btw the way to the wat is kinda dusty and foggy if you drive behind a car. So dont forget mask and glasses ~
