We invite you to visit Wat Chaiwatthanaram, following in the footsteps of the TV drama “Love Destiny 2” (Phrom Likhit). It is an important temple that appears in the famous story of Annivas and the fate of the house of Phi Det.
Located along the canal near Wat Chai and the Chao Phraya river, “Wat Chaiwatthanaram” is an ancient temple from the Ayutthaya period. It was built during the reign of King Prasat Thong. The layout of the temple was based on designs from Angkor Wat, where there is a main prang in the middle that is set on a square base, which is then surrounded by other prangs. There is also a balcony inside which houses 120 stucco Buddha images in the posture of Mara.
From the 13th of October 2023 to 31st of Decemeber 2023, there is a new special event titled, “Tonight...at Wat Chaiwatthanaram”, presents a new perspective on the World Heritage site, complete with lights, colours, and decorations to illuminate the ancient site at night. Viewers can come to witness the spectacular sights on weekends, public holidays and important festivals from 6pm to 10pm during the forementioned dates.
