Kanchanaburi - Wat Thaworn Wararam


This temple is the building you saw in my previous photo (the middle of the three on the other side of the river).
Very difficult to find some information about it.

One source on the internet stated that the Wat Thaworn Wararam is a Mahayana Buddhist temple considered as the first Vietnamese Buddhist temple in Kanchanaburi.
It would have been built in 1834 during the reign of King Rama III.
That s what you can read on:

Strange that a temple from 1834 was not mentioned in my travel guide.
In the WS other temples in the immediate vicinity.
All located in a park-like landscape near the river Kwai. No certainty whether they all belong together.
