Wat Phanan Choeng temple is known to be here before the city of Ayutthaya was established, but there is no record of who its founder was.
The main hall enshrines the gigantic Buddha image called “Luang Pho Tho” by Thais, and “Sam Pao Kong” by Chinese-Thais. The impressive Buddha image almost reaches the top of the chapel with its height of 19 meters. The walls of the main hall enshrine thousands of small Buddha images.
Many Thai people come here during the weekend to worship the Buddha image for happiness and prosperity.
