Wat Rakhang is located next to the Chao Phraya river. It is a very beautiful building. The sparkling reflection in the water is very charming. Many pilgrims come to pray in the temple. Wat Rakhang was built during the Ayutthaya period. The ancient temple on the Chao Phraya River is very grand.
The main entrance of the temple is a golden archway with a golden statue of a monk in the middle. There is still a long way to go to the building of the temple. There are many statues of parrots on the road and a golden bell model. There is a large pool inside, with many turtles in the water.
The exquisite reliefs are engraved on the exterior wall of the wooden sutra hall of Wat Rakhang. The Scripture Pavilion is located on the west side of the temple complex, where Rama I lived before he was crowned. The building’s eaves support columns, beautifully carved bookshelves, and golden and black doors are all outstanding examples of works of art of that period. There is also a small garden in front of the Scripture Pavilion, which is very carefully decorated, as it is paved with cobblestones, and paved with wooden boards, and there are wooden tables and chairs, and large water tanks, and pigeons that fly by from time to time.
Although the area of Wat Rakhang is not particularly large, it is surrounded by beautiful sights, so there are also many tourists coming here. If you are interested, you must come here. In addition, there is a road behind the temple that leads directly to the river. There are many stalls selling flowers, bread and corn kernels. There is a row of steps directly into the river. There are pigeons on the steps and many people feed them.
