Attraction Details :

Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram is located near King Rama II Memorial Park. This temple belongs to the Bang Chang family. It was constructed by Princess Phrarubsirisopharkmahanaknari, the mother of Queen Amarintharamat. The area behind this temple was the residence of Luang Yokkrabat and Khun Nak. It is believed that area about the position of the chedi at present of Wat Amphawan is the place where Khun Nak gave birth to a son (Khun Chim) who later became King Rama II. 

Later, Wat Amphawan was renovated by King Rama III, IV, and V. At present it is a second class royal monastery. The beautiful main building and precious antiques inside the temple are of an early Rattanakosin period architectural and arts style. 

The ordination hall is decorated with vivid murals of folk tales and a royal procession. Beside the ordination hall and behind a statue of King Rama II is a square cloister housing a Khmer-style prang, a reclining Buddha and a variety of other Buddha images. A smaller hall houses a large Buddha footprint.
