Wat Mahannapharam Worawihan  

Ubosot and Viharn

Most taxi drivers will not know the full name of this temple but refer to it as Wat Mahanopp. I visited it several times but those pictures here are from Bangkok's 222nd anniversary in 2004 (or 2547), where the temple played a key role in the celebrations. This is because it sits on Rattanakosin Island, the inner and historical part of Bangkok. The temple combines both Thai and Chinese elements and both the Viharn and the Ubosot have the same style. In the Ubosot is a famous Sukhothai-style Buddha image called Luang Phor Ruang, which was formerly installed in Wat Singkharam in Sri Satchanalai.
