Wat Tha Khae Scripture Hall  
 Known as:   Hor Trai Wat Tha Khae    
 Description:   Hor Trai Wat Tha Khae or Tha Khae Scripture Hall is located at Baan Tha Khae Moo.5, Tha Khae Sub-District, Muang District, Lopburi. It is situated inside Wat Tha Khae.

Normally, Scripture Halls are built in Thai architecture style and the halls will be placed on pillars. Besides, they are laid in the middle of the pond in order to protect the halls from termites and insects. But, Tha Khae Scripture Hall is different from others. This is because it lies on a molehill that is surrounded by flowers and trees. While, it was decorated in the mixed architecture style between Thai, Chinese and Western. The hall was actually a wooden building with four gable ends and the roofs were made of tile as well with four gable ends. There is a little tower on the rooftop which was decorated with carved wood in a western style and this make the hall looks much more delicate. The wooden partitions inside the hall are carved in order to reflect the Chinese propitious thing, while, some parts of them were decorated with colorful glasses. The floor inside the room on the west is lifted up so that there is a space for the book shelf under it to keep Buddhist bibles. There are many visitors stop by at the place every day here.
