The Ancient Golden Buddha Image

The Ancient Golden Buddha Image

This Ayutthaya temple was formerly known as Wat Chesua Hong. Later Queen Suriyenthramat, Ramas III and IV, and King Pin Klao, jointly commissioned its renovation.

The most interesting artifact in the temple is an ancient Buddha image An image hall once stood behind the congregation hall. It was too run-down to be restored. The temple thus left it in ruins and covered with overgrown. Inside the hall sat an image. The temple cracked down the outer plaster cover to find inside an alloy image of the Sukhonthai Period with superb traditional characteristics. It was thus ‘invited’ from the old hall in 1956 to be enshrined in the new congregation hall.
