Wat Nang Rajaworawihan 

Wat Nang Rajaworawihan

Wat Nang Rajaworawihan in Bangkhunthian is a beautiful temple with several large buildings along the Khlong Dan canal.  Unfortunately it was deserted and everything locked, so we could only admire it from the outside. It's an ancient temple which dates back to the Ayutthaya period. It's a royal temple which was renovated several times. Our main reason to visited it was to see the main Buddha image Phra Buddha Patimakorn of late Sukhothai-style, which is said to casted in A.D. 1423.
