Attraction Details :
This temple,formerly called WatKuti, is located on the bank of the Chao Phraya River, though this river too once went by another name: Prakamthong River. The temple is believed to have been constructed during the late Ayutthaya period, and only the ruins of the Ubosot (ordination hall), Chedi (stupa), and Wihan (image hall) remain.
The 4-by-8-meter Chinese-style Ubosot is covered in brick and plaster, and roofed with fired clay tiles. One particularly beautifuldecoration is the carving of an angel, palms pressed together, depicted above lotus motifs on the gables of the Ubosot.
The temple is located at Ban Kuti, Mu 5, TambonBan It, AmphoeMueang, on the Asian Highway (Highway No. 32). To get there, from the Asian Highway, pass the turn-off to NakhonSawan province for 500 meters and turn right at a PTT gas station for approximately 30 meters.
The temple is open daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
