The temple is classified as the second rank of royal temples and in the Worawihara type, located at 51 Moo 7, Tambon Koh Kred, Amphoe Pak Kred, Nonthaburi. It is an ancient temple, presumably established after Prachao Tai Sra had ordered to make the canal way in 1721. That’s why villagers call it “Wat Pak Aow” until 1764 when the Burmese occupied the city. The temple was left empty until 1774 when the Mons immigrated in the reign of Somdet Phra Chao Taksin who ordered to restore the temple which the Mons call “Pia Moo Kia Terng.” In 1874, King Rama V presided over the Thot Kathin ceremony in total 4 Mon’s temples. Noticing that the temple is in utterly poor condition, King Rama V ordered the restoration and overhaul of the temple by preserving the Mon’s style in order to devote the merit to his great-grandmother (Krom Somdej Pra Sudarattanarachaprayur) who had raised him when he was young and named the temple “Wat Poramaiyakawas,” which means the temple of great-grandmother. The monaster installs the principal Buddha statue of Nonthaburi. According to the custom, when a new province governor obtained the position, a welcome occasion and a ceremony to pay respect to the statue must be held. The statue was established in the reign of King Rama V so as to be the principal Buddha statue of Nonthaburi. In addition, the statue is installed in a mirror room under the verandas behind the monastery. Significant objects in the temple are the monastery of which the painting is applied Thai traditional style. The doors and windows are decorated in colored stucco style. What’s more, the glass wall surrounding the monastery is in intricate pattern and made of well-manufactured steel exported from Europe. A pagoda in Mon’s style is situated behind the monastery. King Rama V once was here to pour Buddha’s relics into the pagoda in 1884. A sleeping Buddha statue, Amphoe Pak Kred’s third largest Buddha statue, is installed next to the monastery. A marble Buddha statue which San Siu offered to King Rama V is installed in front of the monastery. Furthermore, Nontamunintr is a Buddha statue in state of deep meditation which Pra Sasana Sopohn (On), the then-chief monk of Mondhon Krung Thep, constructed to be the principal Buddha statue in Nonthaburee until nowadays. The temple is full of shady trees and benches for admiring the beautiful scenery of island border. Hence, this is a place not to miss and a pride of Koh Kred villagers.
