“Wat Chaiwatthanaram was built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong.”

Wat Chaiwatthanaram Built in 1630 by King Prasat Thong. He graciously ordered to build it on the site of his former home to dedicate merit to his mother.But His Royal Highness Krom Phraya Damrong Rajanubhab assumed that this temple was built as a memorial of the victory over Phnom Penh (Phnom Penh) by modeling from Angkor Wat.

Internal base architecture Wat Chaiwatthanaram There is a main prang and a corner prang on the same base. The main Phra Prang was built in the early Ayutthaya period style. But the main prang at Wat Chaiwatthanaram made more porches protruding. On the top of the large pagoda may have enshrined a small pagoda. Refers to the Chulamanee Chedi on the top of Mount Phra Sumen. Around the big prang is surrounded by a balcony that originally had a roof.Inside the terrace are enshrined 120 stucco Buddha images in the subduing Mara posture that were once lacquered and gilded as the walls of the sacred area. Along the corridor in the eight directions, crematoriums and corner crematoriums (Chedi around the main pagoda) are built. Inside every crematorium, Buddha images are enshrined. Inside the Ring Kaew facade, all lacquered and gilded. Through the ceiling is made of wood decorated with lacquer patterns and gilded as well. Crematorium crematorium Surrounded by a total of 8 Phra Prangs

The walls inside the crematorium are painted murals in the form of Bai Bai Kanok. Which has been greatly obliterated The outer wall of the crematorium has 12 stucco images of the Buddha's history, which at present have faded as well, but 20 years ago, the crematorium (left) and the corner prang (right) of the crematorium can be clearly seen. Stacked in descending order up to 7 layers to support the top The origin name is taken from the crematorium. The King's body in Ayutthaya period which has a concept from the motto of Mount Meru

The Ubosot was built in front of the crematorium wall, outside the balcony. At present, only the base remains. Next to it is a code with twelve wooden recesses. There is a wall surrounding these important ancient sites up to 3 floors and there are a number of small pagodas built later.

Wat Chai Watthanaram is the royal temple where the royal merits of all the kings have been performed thereafter. Therefore, it has been restored in every reign. It is the place where almost all members of the royal family are cremated. King Boromakot died and cremated at this temple before the fall of the city in 1767.

Wat Chaiwatthanaram was converted into a war camp. And when losing Ayutthaya Wat Chaiwatthanaram has therefore been left abandoned. Criminals enter to smuggle and dig for treasure.
