This temple was constructed around 1780 during the Thonburiera. A wooden Buddha image in the standing posture, standing over 2 meters tall, is enshrined in the Wihan (image hall), and is called Luangpho Phraphut Ramphueng. According to Thailand’sroyal chronicles, a raft carrying the Buddha image floated along the river, and mysteriously stopped in front of this temple and would not float any further. Phra Thong Yu, the then-abbot, discovered the engraved wooden Buddha image on the raft. The wise monk offered sacrifices to the Buddha image before moving the statue from the river to beenshrined in the temple. Locals and visitors pay homage to the image by attempting to stand eggs upright in front of the Buddha image. Those who succeed, are granted good fortune. Those whose wishes are granted by the image make offerings of boiled eggs and flower garlands. Another attraction is the floating century-old Buddha footprint, located on the ceiling of one of the temple’s halls. Wat Thanon is located in Tambon Phongpheng. To get there, from Amphoe Pa Mok, pass the municipal market and head to the inner route of Pa Mok- Bang Ban route (Highway No. 3501). Turn at Km 19-20 for approximately 7 kilometers to arrive at the temple. The temple is open daily from 8.00 am-5.00 pm.
