Tiewlasud, together with Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), would like to take you to explore the amazing Wat Kaew Phichit, Prachinburi's cultural and traditional tourist attraction with beautiful and important arts and architectures.       


Wat Kaew Pichit is located on the right of the Bang Pa Kong River in Prachinburi. It was built in 1879 by Mrs. Pramoon Phoca (Kaew Prasungsith) and her niece who donated the land together with assets and workers. The very first buildings of the temple include sermon hall, chapel, monk’s house, ubosot, waterfront public hall, and houseboat.        


In 1908, Chao Phraya Abhaibhubejhr (Chum) moved from Cambodia. He and his family had contributed to the renovation and construction of the additional building. His family supports the maintenance of this temple up until now.     



In 1918, Chao Phraya Abhaibhubejhr demolished the old and broken ubosot, and built the new one. He designed the new ubosot with outstanding architecture, a combination of Thai, Chinese, Khmer and Western art styles.


The Attitude of Forgiveness Buddha Image       


Inside the ubosot, there is the one and only Buddha image designed by the Prince Damrong Rajanubhab, according to 3 wishes of Chao Phraya Abhaibhubejhr, in 1919.  

1. If you are impatient, you will be relaxing after worship. 

2. If you are a nonsense talking, your talking will be impressive after worship.    

3. If you offend others with or without intention, you will receive forgiveness after worship.    


"There is a lamb to cover the old Buddha statue because there should be only one Buddha statue in the ubosot"




There are many other interesting things for you to admire such as Chao Phraya Abhaibhubejhr's urn, Phra Rattanasuwan Buddha image, the library 'Ho Trai', and waterfront pavilion.
