Wat Khao Chan Ngam, in the Province of Nakhon Ratchasima, is a beautiful example of a forest temple. It is very quiet and you will hardly ever see anybody here. The temple is really a mix of forest, rocks and caves, in which you can find Buddha images. It is also known for it's prehistoric color paintings on the wall of the cliff, which are estimated to be 3000-4000 years old.
