Or called in a short name , Wat Yai. This temple was built in Ayudhaya period by local artisans (Phetchaburi artisans was so famous in Ayudhaya period and it ?s still be alive.) and renovated again in King Rama V in Rattanakosin period.
Interesting things :
-Sala Karn Parien or a hall for sermons, once was a pavillion of King Sue in Ayudhaya period.He was dedicated this pavillion for the famous royal abbot named Tangmo. This building was built from teak wood and decorated with gold on lacquer.The most famous and be as masterpiece is the front central door(on the East). Inside, housed 2 pulpits ,one was built in Ayudhaya period which is so beautiful carving.
-Ubosot or ordination hall, located in main building complex.The most famous is mural painting which was painted in Ayudhaya period. You can see 5 ranges of gods,rishis and yaksas paying respect to the principal buddha image (as a symbol of Buddha).
-Hor Tri or a hall for keeping scripture, located in pond on the South side of ubosot complex. It is hardly found for now,both from style which stands on only 3 pillars and located in pond (for protect insects ).

Address: Na Phralan sub-district , Muang district.
Directions: About 1 km from city hall.
