Khao Pun Cave Temple (Wat Tham Khao Pun)

The verdant hills surrounding the town of Kanchanaburi hide numerous limestone caves, many of which have been used as Buddhist and animistic temples over the years. Khao Pun Cave Temple (Wat Tham Khao Pun or, occasionally, Wat Tham Khao Poon) is one of the best.

Claustrophobic passages burrow into the hill, where cave formations — stalagmites and stalactites — are interspersed with alters carved from the rock, displaying statues of the Buddha, various Hindu deities and offerings left by devotees.

During World War II, soldiers of the Japanese Imperial Army used the Kanchanaburi caves for storage.
