Wat Thammamun Worawihan 

        Chai Nat has an important place in Thai history. This province, whose name means a Place for Victory, was used as base to fight the invading Burmese army and each time the marauding army was defeated. Hence, the beautiful name. The provincial town of Chai Nat has been around for centuries and it is believed that it was established during the reign of King Rama IV when a community moved from the old site of Sankhaburi.


        The province has many things to offer a visitor and one should not miss a visit to Wat Thammamun Worawihan. This is the main temple of Chai Nat since Ayutthaya period. It is located on the banks of Chao Praya River, on slopes of Thammamun Hill.

        Wat Thammamun Worawihan house the Luangpho Thammachak, which is a standing image of Buddha in a posture where He is persuading relatives not to quarrel. The image has a lotus shaped base. This Buddha image is a blend of late Chiang Saen period, early Sukhothai period and Ayutthaya period. At the center of the Buddha image’s palm is a Wheel of Destiny of Dharmachakra. The sculptor who created the Buddha image tried to do so with Lakkhana Mahapurisa, also known as the Great Man with 32 marks.

        The other major attraction of Wat Thammamun Worawihan is the boundary wall that runs around the compound. The wall is made from red sandstone in Ayutthaya style of architecture. It also runs around the ordination hall or Phra Ubosot.

        The temple celebrates two fairs annually to worship and honor the Buddha image. The first fair is held during the 4th and 8th day of the waxing moon of sixth lunar month, while the second fair is held in the eleventh lunar month during the 4th and 8th day of the waning moon.
