Wat Rai Khing - Nakhon Pathom  


It located at Tambon Rai Khing, Nakhon Pathom province. About 45 min's drive from Bangkok.  It was built in 1791, Somdej Phra Phuttha Chan (Pook) named this temple after the district. When construction was completed, the Buddha image was brought from
Wat Sala Poon and enshrined here, later the locals named the image “Luang Pho Wat Rai Khing”. The Buddha image is of
Chiang Saen style and is assumed to have been built by Lanna Thai and Lan Chang craftsmen. According to legend, this Buddha image was found floating in the river, so the local people lifted the Buddha image out of the water and enshrined the image
at Wat Sala Poon. One of the finest Buddha image and mural in the Ubosot we had seen.

The temple is well known among Thais, faithful Buddhists frequently pay a visit to Wat Rai Khing to pay homage to the sacred Buddha image. This temple is also renowned for its natural fish sanctuary, a habitat of hundreds of thousands of Sawai fish and
