Wat Pa Lelai Worawihan -
Thanon Malai Maen, Tambon Phihandaeng, Amphoe Mueang, Suphanburi
This ancient royal temple, believed to have been built some 800 years ago when Suphan Buri was a prosperous community, bears the emblem of King Rama IV on its gable. A huge seated Buddha image named “Luang Pho To", 23 meters in height, is enshrined in the main chapel. Semi-annual festivals are held in April and November for locals to pay their respects to the image.
In addition, a traditional Thai-style house known as Khum Khun Chang can be enjoyed. The house’s construction and design carefully follow descriptions in a piece of classic literature, “Khun Chang-Khun Phaen”, which was penned by the early Bangkok era’s most beloved Thai poet, Sunthon Phu.
The temple is located on Malai Maen Road, Tambon Rua Yai, on the western bank of the Suphan Buri River (Tha Chin River). It is open daily from 6.00 am-5.00 pm.
