Buddhist Temples

Nonthaburi Province

One of the most significant art objects in the temple is the Maha Raman Pagoda, a Mon style pagoda at the bank of the temple hall, build at the command of King Rama V, as a replica of the Mutao Pagoda in Hanthawadi, the capital of the Mon Kingdom in Burma.

The Temple Hall meanwhile, is decorated with materials from Italy, which was the trend in the Fifth Reign and features murals in Western style painting with perspectives.
