PHRA SAMUT CHEDI
One of the most impressive sights along one of the banks of the Chao Phraya River is this brilliant white pagoda standing on an island, in the middle of the river — Phra Samut Chedi.
Historically, it was King Rama II’s idea to have a temple built on this idyllic location, by the river, but it was King Rama III who completed the project. This Sri Lankan-style bell-shaped Chedi later saw more construction change by King Rama IV who also added more Buddha images.
WAT LUANG PHOR TOH
This temple was originally built to commemorate King Naraesuan – The Great’s victory over Burma. Later a large bronze Buddha image built in the Sukhothai style became the principal image in this temple.
It was known as Luang Por Toh and it became, and still is up until today, one of the most popular and highly revered Buddha images. Many of the people who come to pay respects arrive by boats. Travelling along the canal, they would also visit an old market nearby where there is a lot of delectable food and souvenirs.
