Attraction Details :
The temple, which is located at Ban Laem District, 12 kilometers from Phetchaburi City, houses a highly respected Buddha image locally known as Luang Pho Khao Takhrao. The image was found in Mae Klong River in Samut Songkhram Province along the another Buddha image by villagers who migrated from Ban Laem to Samut Songkhram during the fall of Ayutthaya to stay away from the Burmese troops. The villagers later kept only one of Buddha images in Sumut Songkhram and gave another one to villagers who moved to stay near Wat Khao Takhrao.
