Wat Ku

This temple is located in the vicinity of Tambon Bang Phut, 4 kms. from Amphoe Pak Kret. It was constructed at the time when the Mon people, led by Phraya Cheng, migrated into the Kingdom during the reign of King Taksin of the Thonburi era (late 18th century). There is a building constructed to commemorate King Rama V’s Queen Sunantha who drowned in a shipwreck. Her body was temporarily placed in the temple prior to transfer into Bangkok.
