Wat Chong Kham is an old temple on the bank of the swamp Nong Chong Kham.
It was built in 1827 by Thai Yai artisans. The pillars are gilded in golden flakes.
The temple houses a large Buddha statue with a lap width of 4.85 metres cast by Burmese craftsmen. Another statue is a replica of the Buddha image in Wat Suthat in Bangkok.
