There are 3 atria in this cave. In the first cave section, a pond teems with myriad fish. In the second, stalactites and stalagmites form shapes said to be similar to deities known as KuanImBodhissatva and HokLokSio, the three Chinese gods. The remaining atrium is actually a myriad of smaller caves, with coral reef-like stone formations. The cave can only be visited during the dry season. In addition, within the cave sits LuangphoYai, a stucco Buddha image covered with black lacquer and gold leaf from the Ayutthaya period. In the rear two more large caves can be found: Tham Sam Khao and ThamThepPrathan.
