This ancient temple is part of the Kamphang Phet Historical Park, and has the distinction of being located directly outside the entrance to the provincial museum. It follows the standard Park design, however, it is smaller than most of the other temples. The temple ruins consist of a rectangular area (~5m long), with a dais at one end where, five centuries ago, would reside the Buddha statue. As with most, if not all, such ancient temples, this is still visited by Thais, who leave small offerings and pay their respects.
