Wat Tha Chang

Wat Tha Chang

Wat Tha Chang was the place where lots of elephants came together in historic times. Hence the temple is named after this fact. The old Ubosot dates back to the times of King Rama V. and has beautifully decorated door and window frames. Also the gable of the front of the building shows beautiful wood carvings with a three-headed Erawan in its center. A friendly older monk showed us the inside of the Ubosot, which contains one large Buddha image but is otherwise undecorated.
