Wat  Pa Kub was located on the city island outside the Historical Park in Pratu Chai
sub-district. There are no traces remaining from this temple above ground level.

Wat Pa Kub is positioned on a
mid-19th century map, on the east side of Khlong Pratu
Khao Pluak and west of Wat Pet. Wat Khok Rak stood in the north, while Wat Kraji
was in the southeast. Wat Pa Kub is represented on the map with a redented chedi on a
square base.

Phraya Boran Rachathanin (PBR) situates Wat Pa Kub on his
map drafted in 1926 more
or less on the same spot, with Wat Pet in the north, Wat Khok Rak in the south and Wat
Kraji in the southeast.

The Fine Arts Department on a map drafted in 1993, abbreviates Wat Pa Kub to Wat
Kub and indicates the monastery on the location where PBR positions Wat Pet, just
north of
Thewa Sathan, along Khlong Pratu Khao Pluak.

It is obvious that there were different monastic structures in this area and their
denomination remains unfortunately a bit of guess work.

Historical data about Wat Pa Kub and its construction are not known.
