Wat Tammikarat is a royal temple surrounded by many large pillars. It is one of the biggest royal temples of the Ayudhya Kingdom. Despite some damage, it still shows traces of embellishment. Originally, it was the enshrinement of Luang Por Tammikarat – the villagers called him Luang Por Kae (old) since he had an old face. One of the biggest Buddha images made by U-thong artisans is today preserved in the Jao Sampraya National Museum.
Inside Wat Tammikarat, there is a very beautiful reclining Buddha. As stated in the legend, one of the queens of the Ayudhya period built this reclining Buddha for her daughter in order to help her recover from illness. The sacred water from this Buddha is believed to be able to cure illness.
Inside the temple area, there is free drinking water for visitors. Visitors can also donate drinking water if they want. The restrooms inside the temple are very clean. There are restrooms for disabled and the elderly.
