From the evidence told about the origin of this temple that built in Dvaravati period and later rebuilt in Khmer influence period (Bayon period). After that in Ayutthaya period, there was a reconstruction over the old khmer prang for a new Ayutthaya prangs.
The must see things are:
-a group of Prangs, which built in Ayutthaya period over the Khmer Prang.It surrounded with 3 prangs on the same base. The main Prang have a long niche where inside decorated with mural painting about the past Buddha. It assumed to be painted on the same date as main Prang. Outside the Prang also decorated with finest Ayutthaya style stucco which hardly find in Ayutthaya.
-Viharn, inside housed a big Buddha image.
-the boundary wall surrounded the Prangs, over the wall decorated with carving stones which 's the same style as Bayon in Khmer Art.

The floating market called Damnoen Saduak in Ratchaburi province is somewhere you really have to go! According to history, Damnoen Saduak was the name of the canal dug by King Rama IV in 1866. In those days rivers and canals were essential for transportation. King Rama IV, with his great concern for the country's future economic growth, had the canal dug to connect the Taachin and Maklong rivers. Ooo...Very industrious!?! I cant recall how much you have to pay to get on the boats but i do remember they were really unstable and i was a bit scared. Ahaha. There are loads of other boats around and you can imagine how they actually fit so much ***e in and paddle all day long. Each boat sells a main item, if it is bananas, the whole boat will be filled with bananas, if its hats, you get big and smalls one neone you want. I have to say I really like the colour arrangement.

The bat's cave is a definte must see and probably also an off the beaten track. At 6pm every evening, the bats will start making their way out of da cave in search for food...and they will continue flying out til the last one gets out at about 8pm!!! It is a FANTABULOUS sight! There millions and millions of them above u in the sky and you just wonder where they off to. And the smell is just unbearable so just stop breathing for that 2 hours. Lol!
Where else can u see so many bats at a time without being afraid they might come attack u?!?! The only thing that made me come running out of the cave are the roaches on da ground! Yikes! I really hate them!
I was actually inspred to go to the caves after watching the Amazing Race!

We rented a mini-van that could fit up to 11 of us. I think this may very well be the best option to explore the place as you've got the option to stay overnight cos there are just too many things to see! Rental of vans are cheap and the company which does most of this is Budget.
