The museum has a bamboo hut with a collection of photographs displayed. The hut is a facsimile of the conditions the POW’s who were forced to live in.

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery is open daily for the visitors. Although there is no admission fee, contributions towards the preservation of the site are most welcome. It is advised to be utmost polite as the place is very important for most of the people.

The Bridge over the River Kwai:

“The Bridge over the River Kwai” is located in the province of Kanchanaburi about 130 kilometers from Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. It was built when the Japanese required a railway connecting Bangkok with Rangoon with a purpose to attack India during World War II. Internationally renowned as the black iron bridge was brought from Java by the Japanese army and reconstructed there under Japanese supervision. More than 13000 prisoners of war contributed their lives to complete the bridge also known as “The Death Railway”. The bridge was the target of frequent Allied Bombers during the World War II. The railway bridge is still having a daily train from Kanchanaburi to Nam Tok Railway station.
Tiger Temple, or Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua, is a Buddhist forest temple in Western Thailand which is a house for different kinds of animals including tigers that can be touched by the visitors. It’s weird but it’s true. It is about 40 kilometers away from the famous “Bridge on the River Kwai” built during World War II.
The Thailand’s tiger temple tour is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Thailand and attracts tourists from all over the world. The reason is because the big cats are actually living together with the Buddhist monks and it’s like a miracle that the beasts have shunned their animal instincts. The monks at tiger temple even allow you to touch the familial tigers. This unique Buddhist Tiger Temple is altogether different from any other tiger zoos of the world.
The tiger temple was started as a forest monastery and sanctuary for numerous wild animals in the year 1994. Then, the tiger temple received the Golden Jubilee Buddha Image of Gold weighing 80 kg. The first tiger cub arrived to the monastery in February 1999. It was a female cub of Indo-Chinese species. Now, tiger temple has become the home of numerous tigers. You can also find deer, buffalos, horses, cows, wild goats and gibbons in the sanctuary. All these animals ramble freely here.
