Wat Pichai Songkram, Ayutthaya Overview

Located on the banks of the Pa Sak River Wat Pichai Songkram is a beautiful Buddhist monastery that dates back to the 14th century. Several monks reside here even today. The current name ‘Wat Pichai Songkram’ meaning ‘Temple of War Victory’ was bestowed on this monastery in honour of King Taskin and his troops, who won over the Burmese invaders.

Though the temple has many intricately adorned buildings and statues worth looking at, the two figures of three elephants are the most remarkable things here. The Shrine of King Taskin the Great is located close by and is also worth a visit. It holds a special place in the hearts of Thai people because this is where King Taskin gathered his troops and prayed for victory before fighting the Burmese. Many people come here to pay homage to King Taskin and believe praying at this holy place to Buddha will make their wishes come true.
