Wat Khae 

        Suphan Buri is known for its rich culture and historical heritage. It was a province that played an important role during the ancient times as it was constantly involved in border skirmishes and wars with the Burmese army.

The temple is also mentioned in the famous Thai poem, Khun Chang Khun-Phaen. The temple compound has a huge tamarind tree, which is believed to be thousands of years old. The tree trunk is nearly 9.5 meters wide. According to legends, Khun Paen learned magic spells and turned the leaves from the tree into wasps and hornets and used them to fight his enemies.

They are commonly referred to as Phra Phutthabat Si Roi. In addition, there is a seated image of Lord Buddha wearing a robe with floral designs belonging to the Rattanakosin era. The image shows Lord Buddha in subduing Mara posture.
