Wat Ton Son 

Luang Phor Samrit Image

Wat Ton Son in the village of Ban Laem in Petchaburi Province enshrines Luang Pho Samrit, a Lopburi-style image in the posture of pacifying the ocean. It is located in a rather new wiharn building, which contains several other images, all covered in gold leaves. The Ubosot is across the steet and was closed when we visited.  There is a traditional homage paying event during Loy Krathong at the temple.
