Attraction Details :
Within the compound of Wat Wichian Bamrung, the largest Wichian Buri Rattana Mingmongkhon Reclining Buddha Image in the province is enshrined. The reclining statue is 50 meters long and stands five meters high, facing the rising sun in the east. The statue is mostly made of cement, but was painted a beautiful glittering gold. It is said that the image contains the relics of the Lord Buddha’s collarbone.
The temple is also home to statues of historic Thai ruler King Naresuan the Great, Phra Suphan Kanlaya (his sister), and King Ekathotsarot (his brother). A beautifully engraved timber tree boat, dating to the Ayutthaya Kingdom, was discovered in the Pa Sak River and is housed at the temple as well.
Wat Wichian Bamrung is located in Tambon Tha Rong, near the Wichian Buri District Office, off of Highway No. 21 (Lom Sak - Saraburi Route).
The temple is open daily from 6.00 am-5.00 pm.
