Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Worawiharn
Located in Soi Chalerm Prakiet 15, it is a second-rank royal Temple on the western bank of Chaophraya River.
This royal monastery in Soi Chalerm Phrakiat 15, built in 1847 by order of King Rama III, was dedicated to his majesty the king’s grandparents and mother. Located in a very peaceful and shady area, the Temple has completely reflected King Rama III’s most favorite style that combines chinese art in constructing the monastery. Therefore, the main shrine hall or Ubosot is decorated with beautiful stucco using chinese porcelains on the gable and door as well as window frames at the outside while gorgeous mural paintings ornament perfectly inside the edifice. The temple’s biggest Buddha image made from Bronze named ‘Phraphuttamahalokaphinanthapatima’ is enshrined in the Ubosot. Other buildings such as Phra Wiharn Luang, Wiharn Sila Khao, Phra Chedi or pagoda in Ceylonese form, Kan Parian Luang which is a hall for sermons in a mixture of Thai and Chinese architecture are also considered as the remarkable sites of this monastery.
