Founded in the 1860s by resident Tamils, this teeming Hindu temple is dubbed Wat Khaek ('guest temple'). Thais and Chinese, too, make offerings to Uma Devi (Shiva's consort), and images of Vishnu, Buddha and Ganesh. The multi-hue walls and tower bristle with sculptures. Rites of self-mortification take place here during October's Navaratree Festival , and the temple observes Diwali (October/November).
