Wat Chedi Hoi
WatChedi Hoi is a temple known for being the site where gigantic oyster fossils, calculated to be millions of years old, were discovered. The abbot built a Chedi (or stupa) at the entrance of the temple with the special fossils. Inside the compound is also a museum collecting Buddha images, artwork, antiques, and many old utensils such as Sam Khok water jars, pottery and engraved wood. An herb garden as well as turtle and fish ponds provide scenic spots to relax and even feed the animals.
Wat Chedi Thong
This temple is located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River in TambonKhlongKhwai, Amphoe Sam Khok, 8 kilometers from PathumThani Town. Inside the temple lies a Mon-style Chedi, or stupa, constructed during the early Rattanakosin era. The temple’s architecture imitates the Burmese “Chittakong” stupa. In addition, a respected white jade Buddha image is enshrined at the temple.
Wat Phai Lom
WatPhaiLom is a temple known for its variety of beautiful migrating birds. Asian˙Openbills˙migrate from India to lay their eggs here from November to May. Other kinds of migratory birds include Black-capped Kingfishers, Spot-billed Pelicans and Black-headed Ibises. Declared a preservation area, the surrounding dense forests have been home to Openbills for over a century.
Wat Bot
Wat Bot was constructed in 1621 by the Mon ethnic minority group, whose members had recently migrated from Pegu or Hongsawadi town. The name of the temple was borrowed from the Mon people’s former home, similar to many other temples in PathumThani such as Wat Hong, and Wat Bang Tanai. Locals nowadays travel to pay their respect to three Buddha images in the shrine hall and the cast statue of LuangpuThian (PhrakhruBowonthammakit), a highly knowledgeable senior monk who was also an advocate for education.
