Attraction Details :

Kanchanaburi is an old city with a long-run history dated back to Ayutthaya era. Serving as a fortress city for both Ayutthaya and Rattanakosin kingdoms (circa 1548-1784), the ancient Kanchanaburi was centered near the Three Pagodas Pass at the Thai-Burma border with archeological evidences remain on site. While most architectural structures now remain as ruins, a number of Buddhist temple still exist, such as WatKhunPaen, Wat Mae Mai and, most importantly, Wat Pa Lelai, an ancient temple best known for the giant Buddha statue with a unique posture when receiving alms from an elephant and a monkey.
