Wat Phai Lom

Wat Phai Lom is located in the district of Soi Dao in Chanthaburi. Its key attraction is the reclining statue of the Buddha in gold and it is one of the region’s main attractions.

The main building itself has a sombre facade, though within it is the contrasting sight of the magnificent reclining golden Buddha statue. This is what attracts the most number of visitors to this sacred site. Those exploring the rest of the complex which dates back to the 18th century will also come across a fascinating ordination hall that features intricate frescoes. The entirety of Wat Phai Lom is one of quiet comfort and you will find the ambience to be rather soothing.
