Attraction Details :
Wat Phra Non Chakkrasi Worawihan is a royal temple of the third class. It is believed that the temple predates the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Inside the Wihan (or image hall), a large reclining Buddha image is enshrined. This beautiful Sukhothai-styled Buddha image is almost 50 meters long and faces the north. The other two Buddha images are Phra Kan, a gilded stone image, and Phra Kaeo, a seated image in the diamond throne posture. The two sacred images have beautiful features. They were built during the reign of King Rama V to be used as the principal images at oath of allegiance ceremonies for civil servants. In front of the hall are cannonball trees, which holds special significance to Buddhists.
