Apart from the aesthetic qualities of the temple complex, the site is well-known amongst birders for its colony of Edible-nest Swiftlets Collocalia fuciphaga. The colony is located high up in the roof of the shrine of one of the temple’s founders, and is guarded at all times to stop thieves stealing the valuable nests.

The colony has been using this building for thirty years, and some nests are harvested annually to pay for the protection of the colony and for tubs of mealworms used to feed very young swiftlets that are routinely found on the temple floor and are looked after until (hopefully) they fledge. Donations are very welcome from visitors of course.
A very unique Thai temple that no other like this.
