How to keep irrational number as their original form rather than approximation when using StringTemplate?

StringTemplate["`1`"][Sqrt[3]]

This will output approximation "1.73205" rather than $\sqrt{3}$. And outputs "Pi" rather than $\pi$.

Use the setting (ToString[#, StandardForm]&) for the option InsertionFunction:

StringTemplate["`1` and `2`", 
  InsertionFunction -> (ToString[#, StandardForm]&)][Sqrt[3], Pi]
