Located next to Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat
and opposite to the very interesting Wat Ratchaburana
, Wat Nang Phaya temple is smaller and less visited. Yet, it viharn is hosting the beautiful Phra Nang Phaya Ruenkaew Buddha image in a style very similar to Buddha Chinnarat.
The temple is famous for its Phra Nang Phaya amulet in the image of the Buddha seated with a three-headed naga decorated on their eaves. he interior of the temple is adorned with beautiful images and as it is much less popular than Wat Yai (Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat), the big temple of the city which is right next to it, it is a more peaceful and very pleasant temple to visit. I really advise you to combine the visit of these 3 temples which are very closed to each other: Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, Wat Nang Phaya and Wat Ratchaburana.
