Attraction Details :
Wat Song Phi Nong is located 300 meters from the famed Wat Mahathat, and has its own special story. Legend has it that one of three siblings, named Chao Sam, incited the other two siblings, Chao Ai and Chao Yi, to fight for the throne. Chao Ai and Chao Yi fought to the death, making Chao Sam the only heir remaining, and the ruler. Chao Sam then built one Prang (or spire) and one Chedi (or stupa) in remembrance of his brothers. The structures are believed to have been built 600 years before Ayutthaya Kingdom was even established, making them ancient indeed.
Wat Song Phi Nong is located in Amphoe Sangkhaburi and is open daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
