English: Located in Bang Kung subdistrict, Bang Khonthi district, this area was once set up as a military camp called “Kai Bang Kung” for troops from southern provinces to fight against Burmese army. After the fall of the Ayutthaya kingdom, King Taksin restored this camp to base Chinese soldiers, and renamed it “Kai Chin Bang Kung”. In order to honour these heroes, dozens of life-size statues in different Muay Thai moves are on display. Also, a monument of King Taksin, the Great is situated at the front. Of note the temple itself features the ubosot lodged in roots of large sacred Bodhi trees and few species of Banyan trees. When viewed from the outside, it is clearly evident that these roots have preserved the structure of the temple. As a result, this temple is labelled as one of the “Unseen Thailand”. Inside the ubosot, there is a large Buddha statue “Luang Po Phuttha Maneenil”, commonly known as “Luang Por Dam, in subduing mara position created in the late Ayuttha period”, and mural paintings, depicting the Lord Buddha’s past life.
