Wat Suwandararam is also called Wat Thong, because the father of King Rama I built it and his name was Thongdee. It was completely destroyed by the Burmese and rebuilt in 1785. Besides the beautiful temple buildings in late Ayutthaya-style, it is famous for it's beautiful murals which cover significant historical events in both the Ubosot and the Viharn building as well as the presiding buddha image of Phra Phrathan Wat Suwandararam.
