Wat Pa Lelai Worawihan 

        Wat Pa Lelai Worawihan is located on the banks of Tha Chi River. The temple has the royal insignia of King Rama V, which shows that it is a royal temple. According to historical records, before succeeding to the throne, King Rama V was a monk and it was during that time that he was responsible for founding Wat Pa Lelai Worawihan. After he became the king, King Rama V had the temple restored to its former glory.


        A Buddha image called Luang Pho To is housed in the wihan of the temple. This image is massive reaching a height of 23.46 meters. The image is a seated image in a posture known as Polilayaka, which is considered to be European style of seating. You can see the seated Buddha image accepting offerings from an elephant and monkey, which is a typical art form of U Thong Suphannaphum era. In addition to the Luang Pho To, the wihan also houses 36 Buddha relics.

        Opposite the wihan, you can find many souvenir shops that sell local products. Towards the rear of the temple compound, you can find a traditional Thai house. The house is standing on stilts, which are made from teak wood. This stilted house is known as Khum Khun Chang. In the house you can find displays of pictures which show scenes from Khun Chang-Khun Phaen, which is a classical Thai poem. In addition, you can also see ancient equipment and tools used by the people of this region, ceramics as well as furniture.

        Every year, the temple holds 2 festivals to pay homage to the huge Buddha image housed in the temple.
