small Wat with great history around it. the Wat is small and covered wholy by the tree that also now support the structure. the Wat have status of the King Taksin soldiers who fought against Burmese during the Ayuthaya period. There is also very nearby a new Chinese Temple dedicate to King Taksin who was from Chinese origin. Also at site there is nice small shrine to memory Princess who was hidden as boy soldier and fought also the Burmese - some legend story is well marked in English

We went here as part of our floating market tour. We spent less than 30 minutes here since it is just a small temple that has a tree growing above it. It is quite unique since no other temple in Thailand is like that. There was not much else to see though. People come here to pray, and there are statues outside.

No need for donations, but with the experience of being given sheets of gold to stick onto the buddha statues (for good luck), you might would want to. Truly worth the experience.
