Presentation Wat Pa Pradu (Reclining Buddha temple)

Thai name : วัดป่าประดู่
My opinion:
Located not far from Rayong Clock Tower, Wat Pa Pradu is undoubtedly the must-visit monument in Rayong city. This ancient temple built in the time of Ayutthaya is famous for its 12-meter-long reclining Buddha which has the particularity of being installed on the left side, head to the right, when in the vast majority of cases, the Reclining Buddha images are the other way around.

A monk came on a pilgrimage to this deserted temple and discovered the remains of an ordination room and the reclining statue of the Buddha, he decided to live there and received people to practice medicine so the villagers built a house for the monk and restored the temple. The current name of the temple refers to the Pa Pradu sub-district in which it is located. Today it is a royal temple.
