Attraction Details :

Wat Si Sawan Sangkharam, or Wat Thu Nam as it is known by residents, is an ancient temple used in beautiful oath-taking ceremonies for civil servants to pledge their allegiance to His Majesty the King. Authentic spear blades, oars, knives and swords remain from the temple’s heyday; one gold and one silver Buddha image adorn its halls. The principal Buddha image in the old convocation hall is well over a century old. The temple’s religious significance is immense, its relics priceless.

In 1976, His Majesty the King, Her Majesty the Queen and their two daughters presided over the opening of a new hall. A pagoda has since been erected to commemorate His Majesty’s 50th Birthday during nationwide celebrations, known as the Golden Jubilee.

To get there, take Highway No. 32 (Asian Highway) then turn left towards Chiraprawat Fort (Highway No. 3001) for two kilometers.  Signs along the way point to Wat Thu Nam. It is about three kilometers from the city.
