Wat Lat Sing

Located in Tambon Ban Sa on Liap Khlong Chonlaprathan Road, 7 kilometres off Highway 3038, the temple was formerly called Wat Ratchasing. After Phra Maha Upparacha of Burma was killed by King Naresuan on the elephant back duel, the Burmese kingdom executed King Naresuan’s sister, Phra Suphan kanlaya, who had been held hostage in Burma, in revenge. So, a legend says that King Naresuan the Great founded the temple to honour his sister. The temple houses a 500-year-old Buddha image and three pagodas standing for King Naresuan, King Eka Tossarod, and Phra Suphan kanlaya.
