Wat Bot Manee Siboonrueng
Wat Bot Manee Siboonrueng Wat Bot Manee Siboonrueng is located in the opposite side of Phra Chao Tak Sin Shrine. Initially, there were 2 temples within the area; Wat Bot Maneerat, and Wat Siboonrueng. In 1954, the two were combined into one temple as nowadays. Wat Bot Manee Siboonrueng was built in 1859. Originally, the vihara of the temple was wholly made of teak. Inside the vihara, there are 8 mural paintings on planks on the left and right sided walls. Surrounding the principal Buddha image, 2 paintings were hung on the right and left hand sided walls, and another painting at the back of the statue. All mural paintings are related to life of the Lord Buddha, already registered by the Department of Fined Arts of Thailand. Apart from the Vihara, the Chedi is also extraordinary unique. To illustrate, the Chedi was built in Mon style, whereas the vihara is in Thai style. The vihara enshrined Luang Phor Phra Puttamon, a bronze Buddha statue from Sukhothai period with elegant characteristics. It was assumed to be built in the early Buddhist era (19 B.E.). Wat Bot Manee Siboonrueng has many historical evidences that should be preserved. With its glamorously exquisite mural paintings, the temple has been famous for its beauty. This site is greatly worth-studying for both Thai and foreign visitors.
