It was inscribed in Chinese language on the stone inscription evidence of the former ordination hall that the hall was built by Chinese people in Meng Xiao Period who used a ship to do business with Somdet Phra Narai Maharat in Lop Buri along with Dutch people. They parked it in front of the temple and built an ordination hall in the period, in which its abbot was Phra Khru Yannasangwon, aged 99. After the ordination hall had been built, an expat of Chinese friends asked for two Phra Nak Pok Hin images from Somdet Phra Narai Maharat so that Chinese people could keep them in the ordination hall until the new ordination hall was built.
