This is another important temple in the town, situated 1 km. east of the city hall. The main shrine hall
has no windows. It contains 300-year-old mural paintings of mythical angels. The multi-purpose hall (Sala Kanprian), once located in Ayutthaya's Grand Palace, was entirely built of teak wood and decorated with fine carving work especially at the door panels. The hall also houses a preaching throne with intricate wood carvings and gold gilt works of Bangkok design.
