Wat Phra Loi

Located by the Tha Chin River, not far from Wat Khae, Wat Phra Loi was built to house a Buddha image that drifted along the river. The white sandstone Buddha image seated under the Naga hood, presumably carved in Lop Buri period, was taken from the water to be enshrined here.

In the temple compound, there is a ruined Ubosot built in the U thong period. Now it is preserved under the roof of the new Ubosot. Nearby, an elegant Ubosot with four entrances houses beautiful the principal Buddha image called Phra Phutthanawaratmongkhon as well as ancient sandstone Buddha images in various attitudes.

After paying respect to the Buddha images, visitors can enjoy feeding thousands of fish in the sanctuary in front of the temple.
