WAT MAHAPRUTTHARAM (MAHA PRUETTHARAM TEMPLE)

Is a third grade Royal Monastery of Worawihan. It is an ancient monastery whose exact origin is unknown. The original name of the temple, Wat Tha Kwian (Cart Harbor) in earlier times derived from a legend telling about King U-Thong of the Ayutthaya era. He had escaped from a cholera epidemic which was ravaging the area was the resting place for travelers who journeyed in kwian. Later in 1852AD (2395B.E.) King MongKut (King Rama IV) named the temple Wat Ta Khien (the name of the miracle tree) and jointly built a new temple with his son, Prince Chulalongkorn (who became King Rama V). The temple was renovated and raised to a Royal temple and King Rama IV renamed it Wat Maha Phruettharam in honor of the first senior lord abbot whose name was given to him by the king: Phramaha Pruttacharya. There are many interesting objects in the temple such as the Ubosot (Ordination Hall) doors, windows and gables decorated with stucco mouldings in the form of Maha Mongkut (the Royal Crown)

Which was the circular royal seal of King Rama IV, and the gables of the Wihan (Hall of Worship) display stucco mouldings in the form of Chunla Mongkut (mini royal crown) which was the circular royal seal of King Rama V. The mural painting inside the Ubosot are a set shoing the Buddhist Pilgrims.

WAT TRIMIT (Golden Buddha Temple)

The Golden Buddha was taken to the Wat Chotanaram in Bangkok. In the 1930’s the image finally ended up in the Wat Traimit, still covered in plaster.

In 1955 a viharn was erected to house the image. When the Golden Buddha was moved to the new building using a crane, a cable broke and the image fell to the ground and into the mud. The workmen are said to have run off fearing bad luck.

The next day, when a monk returned to the temple, he found the image still in the mud, with some of the plaster coating broken revealing the gold, thus revealing the identity and value of the image.

The Wat Pho or “Temple of the Reclining Buddha” is one of Bangkok’s most attractive temples. It is a much-visited temple complex due to its location immediately South of the Grand Palace and the huge Reclining Buddha image it houses.

The temple that is officially named Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimonmangkhalaram is one of the six temples in Thailand that are of the highest grade of the first-class Royal temples.

WAT PHO (Reclining Buddha Temple)

The Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple complex in Bangkok, it houses more than 1,000 Buddha images which is more than any other Wat in Thailand. Most of the images were brought over from abandoned temples in places as Ayutthaya and Sukhothai by order of King Rama I.

After the foundation of Bangkok in the Ko Rattanakosin area in 1782 and the construction of the Grand Palace, King Rama I ordered the construction of the Wat Pho. The temple was built on the site of an older, Ayutthaya era temple named Wat Photharam right next to the Grand Palace.

During the reign of King Rama III, the temple complex was renovated and enlarged which took over 16 years to complete.

46 meters long gold-plated Reclining Buddha

The temple is famous for its enormous gold-plated Reclining Buddha image. The image named Phra Phuttha Saiyat was built during the reign of King Rama III in 1832 and is 46 meters long and 15 meters high.

Although the image is sometimes referred to as the lying Buddha or the sleeping Buddha, the Reclining Buddha shows the passing of the Buddha into final Nirvana after death.
