Wat Borom Puttharam, Ayutthaya Overview

Wat Borom Phuttharam also called Wat Borom Buddharam is a Buddhist temple on the southeast side of the city of Ayutthaya. King Phet Racha was built on the Rajabhat University grounds in 1689, that underwent some major renovations during the reign of King Borommakot.

The temple site still has two main Chedis, an Ubosot or prayer room and a Vihara or sermon hall. The Ubosot houses a beautiful sandstone Buddha image in the meditation posture. Often referred to as 'Wat Krabueang Khlueap' or 'The Temple of 'Glazed Tiles', Wat Borom Phuttharam hosts a range of unique yellow-coloured roof tiles designed by a specialist named Muen Chantaraj. However, since these cannot be seen anymore, as most of the roof hasn't survived.

Wat Borom Puttharam Architecture

During the temple renovation in King Bormommakot's time, three pairs of door panels with mother-of-pearl inlay were specially created for the Ubosot. Although all three-door panels survived after the 1767 Ayutthaya destruction, they have been relocated to other sites in Bangkok.

One pair is installed at the library at Wat Pra Kaeo or the Royal Monastery of the Emerald Buddha. Another pair is housed at Wat Benjamabophit Dusitharam. The last extremely damaged pair was converted into a cabinet that is currently displayed at the Bangkok National Museum.
