Wat Phummarin Kudi Thong

Buddhist Temples

Samut Songkhram Province

Wat Phummarin Kudi Thong is situated by the bank of Mae Klong River, on the west side of the end of Phrachachuen canals mouth.

The attraction of the temple is the Kudee Thong or golden-teak monk’s cell, Phummarin Temple Museum and Education Park display antiquities and treasures collections worthy of preservation.

A Buddha image here, which is over 300 hundred years old, is a gilded stucco image in the posture of Subduing Mara.

There is also a monument of King Rama II. The Kudi Thong has an unusual history where the father of Khun Nak (Queen Ammarinthramat) had her fortune examined by the abbot of Wat Bang Li.

The abbot foretold that she would become a queen. The millionaire father, therefore, promised to build a golden-teak monk’s cell for the temple if the abbot’s words proved true.
