Wat Luang Phrommawat

Wat Luang Phrommawat

Wat Luang Phrommawat is an ancient temple which dates back to the Ayutthaya period. It was built in A.D. 1714 and used to be a ceremonial venue to take the oath of loyalty to the King. To our surprise we saw a big sports field on the temple grounds and then learned that the temple grounds is turned into a sport complex on the weekends. When we visited on a Thursday the temple was completely deserted. The other interesting thing about this temple is hundreds of bats hanging in the trees.
