Wat Sam Wihaan

Thai name : วัดสามวิหาร

GPS : 14.37048833,100.557240333 (See on the map)


Literally it means the three wihaan temple and is often ignored by tourists because not mentionned in all guide books or on itineraries suggested by agencies. It really has three buildings and one of them quite dated contains a 21 meters beautiful painted reclining Buddha believed to be 600 years old. The rest of the temple which is one or two kilometers far away from Wat Phra Neru on the road to the old Ayutthaya floating market is much less interesting.
