Wat Tha Sung
(another name is Wat Chantharam) is at Mu 2, Tambon Nam Sum. It
is an old temple from the Ayutthaya period. It was formerly
called “Wat Chan” which is the name of an
abbot. Wat Chantharam later was abandoned until 1789 when the
monk Luang Pho Yai came here. Villagers asked him to become the
abbot of the temple and he renovated it. The first location of
the temple was on the bank of Sakae Krang River. The artifact of
the place is a pulpit built by Luang Pho Yai that is opposite
the temple. More buildings were later added by the monk Phra
Ratchaphrom Yan Nen (Luang Pho Ruesi Ling Dam). The new
convocation hall is beautiful with an ornately decorated
interior. The inner windows and doors have pictures of angels.
His Majesty the King presided over a ceremony to officially open
the building. Surronding the building is a traditional columned
wall. Images of Luang Pho Pan and Luang Pho Yai 3 times the

interesting places in the temple are the chapel and the main
Buddha image hall. The chapel is of the Rattanakosin period. A
tiled roof covers the building. The Buddha image here is highly
sacred. There are beautiful murals inside, the works of late
Ayutthaya artists. The main hall is a larger building that is

and is located in the municipality on the bank of Sakae Krang
River opposite Uthai Thani Fresh Market. It is surmised that it
was built in the early Rattanakosin period. Many historical
sites and artifacts are found inside, such as wall murals in the
convocation hall from the early Rattanakosin period that depict
the life of Lord Buddha from birth till death. They are of
exquisite craftsmanship. The murals inside the main hall are
also from the same period and depict Lord Buddha showing mercy
upon angels in heaven and others scenes. Moreover, there are 3
pagodas, each from different periods and of different styles.
Also of interest are the main hall, the convocation hall, the
prayer building, the octagonal multi-tiered rood, the Bot Nam
raft, the replica of Lord Buddha’s footprint from the time of

Bot Nam is in
front of Wat Ubosatharam on the bank of Sakae Krang River. It
was built to receive King Rama V when he visited northern
provinces in 1906. Originally a twin raft, it has an elongated
carved apex of the gable like normal temple main halls. It also
had a front part with a circular sign in Pali stating that the
king visited here in good faith. In 1976, the raft was renovated
and made into a single raft of floors so it is suitable for
monks to use. There is an area for worshippers to sit under a
four-sided roof. The sign has been moved to the middle of front
part of the roof. Today the raft is used by raft residents for
religious ceremonies such as weddings, ordinations, funeral, and
