Suphan Buri

Posted By : admin/ 15 0

Suphan Buri came to prominence with the rise of Ayutthaya in the 14th century. The attractive art and architecture of the town are known to few tourists.

Near the center of town is the beautiful prang of Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, restored in the Ayutthaya period and again in the 20th century. At Wat Pa Lelai, on the edge of Suphan Buri, is a Buddha image from the Dvaravati period. To the east is San Chao Pho Lak Muang, a Chinese shrine. Wat Phra Rup, on the other side of the Suphan Buri River, houses a reclining Buddha image and a carved wooden Footprint of the Buddha. The bot of nearby Wat Pratu San contains striking 19th-century murals of the Buddha’s life.
