Wat San Paulo

This is situated on Ruam Decho Road, some 1.5 Kms. east of the town. It was originally a church of the Jesuits founded during the reign of King Narai, and also the first observatory in Asia. Now only a brick wall of a high tower remains behind the church site. The name “San Paulo” called by Thais probably derive from “Saint Paul”.
