The Sunken Temple


The Sunken Temple also called Wat Saam Prasob is found in Sangklaburi.  This temple is known for being weathered , old and worn because it has been there sitting on the water for more than 30 years.

This temple was in the heart of a small town that was destroyed when Vajiralongkorn Dam in Thailand was built. These are the only remnants that can be seen until today of what was once a pivot place of the Mon and the Karen tribes.  Many people visit this place by boat.

Weathered, old and almost forgotten as it may seem but I still wonder why many people still come to visit this place.  It may be because of the unfortunate situation that this place went through and people are curious about it or is it because of the history that were rooted when this place was once on the ground and not under water.  Oh well, let the place speak alone for itself!
