Wat Phra Si Sanphet is a significant historical temple. Considered to be the most important temple for the ancient royal family, Wat Phra Si Sanphet boasts of sculptures brought back from the famed Ankgor Wat in Cambodia.
Wat Phra Si Sanphet is a royal palace, and hence no monks are allowed to reside in there. The temple was used exclusively to conduct royal ceremonies and to store royal relics. One can walk into holy halls where only royals were allowed to enter in the past. It lies on an island in the middle of the Chao Phraya River.
Wat Phra Si Sanphet contains three chedis which are known to have the ashes of three kings: King Rama Thibodi II, King Borom Ratchathirat III, and King Trilok. This place provides a glimpse for us into the past, and we can only imagine how glorious this city was! It is recommended for all history buffs who love art and archaeology.
