This temple was built in the 17th century (Ayutthaya-Period). The main shrine hall has no windows. It contains mural paintings of mythical angels (which are slightly fading).
The hall also houses a preaching throne with intricate woodcarvings and gold gilt works.
The temple is also famous, because it served as a location for the movie "The Legend of Suriyothai".
The Legend of Suriyothai is a 2001 Thai film directed by Chatrichalerm Yukol, telling the story of Queen Suriyothai, who died in a battle in 1548 (the Burmese–Siamese War of 1548)
against Burmese invaders. In the film, Queen Suriyothai takes her battle elephant in front of the Burmese army and sacrifices herself to save the life of her king Maha Chakkraphat
and his kingdom.
