Wat Uposatharam, previously known as Wat Bot Manorom or Wat Bot, the name many locals still use, is an ancient buddhist temple built in the 18th century, in the beginning of Rattanakosin era. It is especially interesting to visit for its murals.

Located just opposite Uthai Thani city, along the Sakae Krang River, on the riKoh Thepho river islan, it is connected to Uthai Thani's municipal market and city center by a narrow bridge only accessible to pedestrians and two wheels vehicles.

Have a look at the ancient murals depicting the legend and the life of Lord Buddha from His birth to His illumination and death. Besides the two ordination halls, there is also the octagonal Mondop, a combination of Western and Thai styles. It was originally built to house the remains of a revered monk.

Practical information about Wat Uposatharam (Wat Bot)

Free admission
Open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Note that in front of the temple, on a pontoon, on the city side, every morning around 7 a.m., a monk from the temple comes in a boat to receive the morning offerings, the only daily food Buddhist monks get. Uthai Thani's alms giving ceremony on a boat is quite popular on weekends and public holidays. It is also from this river platform that you can wave a boat to cruise on the Sakae Krang River. I especially recommend to go on a river cruise in Uthai Thani at sunset (50 THB per person for 1 hour boat).

How to get to Wat Uposatharam (Wat Bot) ?

If you are staying in a city hotel in Uthai Thani or on the island of Koh Thepho, you can reach Wat Uposatharam either on foot or by bicycle (usually provided by the hotel or homestay).
