Bangkok’s Oldest Temple

Located on Bamrung Muang Road, this temple is noted for its superb 19th century murals in the main chapel. King Rama I founded the temple at the central area of the city at that time, and build the sizable Wiharn as the Wiharn of Wat Phanang Choeng in Ayuthaya.

Then the Sukhothai Style bronze Buddha image, brought from Wat Mahathat in Sukhothai, was installed inside the Wiharn. The image was called Phra Toh or Phra Yai means Big Buddha Image. The Wihran was completed in the reign of King Rama III. Then the ubosot was build along with the principal Buddha image.
