Attraction Details :

Wat Amphawan, originating from the late Ayutthaya period, was previously called Wat Bang Muang. The most striking feature of the ancient temple is its wooden scripture hall, which stands in the middle of a pond. This model example of Thai architecture has two rooms in all. Some of the features of the hall are wooden bars, a two-tiered roof covered with earthen tiles and woodcarving with exquisite designs. The entrance door is primed with gold leaves, the window pane dividers, or mullions, are crafted into flowers and gourds, above the doors are birds on each side, and beyond them the radiant sun and moon are depicted. 

Wat Amphawan is located at Mu 13, Tambon Bang Muang, Amphoe Bang Yai, Nonthaburi. To get there, take a 5-minute ride on a long tail boat from Bang Yai District Office. Those driving should take the Bang Bua Thong-Taling Chan outer ring road, turning left at Tambon Bang Muang.

The temple is open daily from 8.00 am-4.30 pm.
