This temple is one f the most popular archaic sites of Ayutthaya. The outstanding component of this temple is a gigantic reclining Buddha image, which is the biggest reclining Buddha image on the city island, the length of which is 42 meters. A unique feature of this Buddha image is the head part that is supported by a lotus, which is believed to be added shortly after the Buddha image was built.
There is no evidence to show when this temple was built but it is believed to be built in the middle phase of Ayutthaya Era. It is also believed that there had been a pantheon built to shelter the Buddha image but the pantheon was destroyed. The Buddha image has been renovated many times, especially in A.D. 1954 and A.D. 1989, until the Buddha image looks completely beautiful.
Other remaining archaic constructions of the temple include a pagoda that is around 30 meters high. This temple is surrounded by community households. Since the Buddha image is in an open area, visitors can see the Buddha image anytime.
