This temple is a must to admire the murals by great masters of Ayutthaya period. It was built during the 17th century and renovated during the reign of Rama V at the end of 19th century. The first thing you see is a beautiful wooden hall housing a preaching throne with intricate woodcarvings. The main shrine hall building containing 300 years old mural paintings of mythical angels. In front of it stands a somptuous Standing Buddha image. Next to it a beautifully Tripitaka library stand on a pound with two snakes statues. The temple is under renovation. It is probably our favorite temple in Phetchaburi city.
