ถ้ำสิน (Tham Sin) is signposted โบราณสถานถ้ำศิลป (ancient cave art). There are two large, brown educational signs which explain the archaeological importance of the site, and a staircase leading to the cave entrance. The small cave is 28 m high above the surrounding fields. It contains ancient murals of different postures of the Lord Buddha and a painting of three women standing together. The mural was dated to the late Srivijaya Period, between the 14th and 15th century. The cave is very easy to visit and has a level floor, but a good lamp is necessary if you want to see the murals. The cave is gated, the principal of nearby Ban Bunnangluwa School keeps the key.
