Wat Khao Khe Thepnimit Wanaram วัดเขาเข้เทพนิมิตวนาราม

Wat Khao Khe Thepnimit Wanaram วัดเขาเข้เทพนิมิตวนาราม 
(Temple at the crocodile mountain - เข้ is short form of จระเข้)


Location:
Kanchanaburi, Sai Yok District จ.กาญจนบุรี อ.ไทรโยค
270 m north of hwy 323 at km 165.
Easily accessible by bus 8203 (Kanchanaburi - Sangkhlaburi), 60 Baht, 10:38-12:48. However getting the next bus to continue or return can take long, after 40 minutes wait I decided to hitchhike.
View from hwy 323:
















This place has the fifth largest Ganesh statue in Thailand that I know of (1 in Nakhon Nayok - have been to, 3 in Chachoengsao - have been to 2 of them).

  1. that bus runs only 4 times/day all the way, but first part is/should be/was about hourly (as far as Nam Tok train station). There are hourly VANs-but as you know they do not stop, as full. I thought a croc was ''sarakay?''.
    Any amusing and/or entertaining reports re gay life in Kan-buri town to follow?

  2. I thought buses are more frequently, but this is past Nam Tok. There were two vans in that 40 min, but they didn't stop (were full). Kae is short for Chorakae crocodile. Reports about gay life in Sangkhlaburi will follow.
