Attraction Details :
Wat Phra Borommathat Worawihan is a historic temple on the bank of the Chao Phraya River. A Second Class royal temple, it has maintained its status as a national treasure since the early Ayutthaya period. Within the temple compound, an old pagoda in the U Thong style is said to house relics of the Lord Buddha and is widely-revered by local residents and Thais in general. Originally constructed with laterite in the Khmer period, the pagoda, or Chedi, was renovated during the Ayutthaya and the Rattanakosin periods. An annual fair is held to worship the relics during the full moon on the sixth lunar month.
