Wat Sam Chuk
The ancient Temple houses the Buddha footprint, sandstone Buddha statue from the Ayutthaya period, and a pair of bronze swans.
No evidence indicating the date of construction for Wat Sam Chuk has yet been uncovered. However, the Temple is believed to be very old, as suggested by religious artifacts uncovered in the temple’s Mondop (square structure). They include the Lord Buddha’s footprint, and a sandstone Buddha image from the Ayutthaya period.The ancient sandstone image has since been restored, and is presently housed in the Sala Kan Parian (preaching hall) as the principal Buddha image. In the past, two bronze swans fronted the Mondop. But they have now been relocated to the chanting hall and in the monk’s abode (which now serves as a museum) Within the area of the chanting hall, Luangpho Thammachak, a Buddha image of the U-thong period, is enshrined. Villagers have long worshipped this sacred statue. The temple is located at Mu 1 of Tambon Sam Chuk, some 600 meters off Highway 340 (Suphan Buri-Chai Nat Road). It is open daily from 9.00 am-6.00 pm. For further details, contact 0 3557 1791.
