Bang Pa-In, the Royal Summer Palace

According to royal annals, King Prasat Thong had built this royal palace because he was born in Bang Pa-In Island and the island was furthermore a home to his mother. The king ordered a temple to be built on the island at the site where his mother used to live in 1632. He named the temple Wat Chumphon Nikayaram. Later on, King Prasat Thong ordered a pond to be dugged and a royal residence to be constructed at the heart of the island for royal travel. Throne-hall Aisawan Thiphayaart Royal residence was later built by the pond. During the reign of King Rama 5, His Royal Highness King Chulalongkorn built several residences on the island to welcome royal visitors and for recreational purposes.

Wat Yai Chaimongkon

Wat Yai Chaimongkon was formerly called Wat Chao Phrayathai or Wat Pa Laew. The temple is situated in the east of Pasak River. Historical records presume that King U-Thong built the temple in 1357 for monks ordained from Pra Wanrat Mahatain Institution in Sri Lanka to reside. In 1592, King Somdej Phra Nareysuan Maharaj defeated Phra Maha Upparaj of Myanmar in a battle while riding on an elephant’s back at Nongsarai district, Muan Suphanburi. King Somdej Phra Nareysuan Maharaj then built the pagoda “Phra Chedi Chaimonkon” in this temple as a resemblance of his victory. Commoners typically address the pagoda as “Phra Chedi Yai” or “Wat Yai Chaimonkon.” The temple was forsaken when the city was defeated. It became a residential site for monks to stay in during rainy seasons. Today, there is a construction of King Somdej Phra Nereysuan Maharaj’s royal palace for people to visit and worship.

Wat Mahathat

Wat Mahathat is located in the foot of Pathan Bridge east of Wat Phra Si Sanpet. The temple was built during the reign of King Somdej Phra Borommarachathirat 1. Thereafter, King Ramesuan installed the cremated bones of the Buddha in the base of the stupa. In 1384, this stupa was known to be the largest Buddha image among all images in the monastery of the temple. The stupa of Wat Mahathat was built in the early period of Krung Si Ayutthaya era. The stupa possessed some features likewise the stupas in Cambodia. In 1956, the Fine Arts Department discovered many essential antiquities, the Pha-Op Sila (stony casket) for instance. There are seven layers of conical shrines overlapping inside the stony casket which are divide into chin, silver, copper alloy, black wood, red chan wood, garnet crystal and gold. The innermost layer installs the Buddha’s cremated bones and valuable decorations. At present the Buddha’s cremated bones are found in Chao Sam Phraya’s National Museum.

 

Bangsai Arts and Crafts Center

The Bangsai Arts and Crafts Center is a center approximating 1000 rai that demonstrates and sells Thai handicrafts. Her Royal Majesty Queen Sirikit established this center to give farmers an opportunity to acquire skills in handcrafting arts as an alternative profession. Altogether, there are thirty divisions: fiber plant product invention, “Wang Pla”- the largest fresh-water fish museum in Thailand, and the “Sala Phra Mingkwan” arts and crafts’ training department for instance. We highly recommend visiting the Kuan-Im Shrine at the Rong Chang Pavillion.

 

Koh Kret

Koh Kret occurred by a cape in a short cut route to Chao Phraya River during the reign of King Tai Sar in the Krung Si Ayutthaya era. Over time, the currents changed drastically, cutting through the bank which therefore caused the canal to expand. The cape area then became an island. Formerly, Koh Kret was called Koh Sala Khun. Today, Koh Kret reflects much of the art in the Krung Si Ayutthaya era. The island was however abandoned when Myanmar attacked Krung Si Ayutthaya. Later on, King Taksin Maharaj restored their liberty and allowed the Peguan to set up an abhode on the island. The Peguan residing in Koh Kret consists of immigrants from the Krung Tonburi and King Rama 2 period. Pakkred eventually became Amphur and Koh Sala Khun changed its status to Tumbol- now known as Tumbol Koh Kret. Transportation in Koh Kret includes bicycles and motor vehicles.
