Wat Thewarat Kunchorn Worawiharn - FURTHER INFORMATION

Wat Thewarat Kunchorn Worawiharn - Bangkok visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Wat Thewarat Kunchorn Worawiharn' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Central Thailand.

Wat Thewarat Kunchorn Worawiharn (วัดเทวราชกุญชร วรวิหาร) was built during the Ayutthaya Period of Thailand. The compound is near to the mouth of the Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem canal and Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.

The complex was originally a common temple, called Wat Samor Khraeng, but converted into a 3rd class royal temple during the reign of King Rama IV and renamed after Krom Phra Phithak Thewet, son of King Rama II.

Inside the Wat Thewarat Kunchorn Worawiharn Ubosot is an 11 foot high Buddha statue in the Subduing Mara, made of bronze and covered in gold. There is a second, smaller temple room in the complex too. Nearby, a little further along the Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem canal, is Nana Market.
