Wat Yai Inthraram is one of the most important Buddhist temples in Chonburi. It dates back to the early Ayutthaya period (14th century). The base of the temple is built in the curved shape of a junk ship

The main attraction of Wat Yai Inthraram is the murals on the walls of the Ubosoth, but most of the time the doors are closed and entrance is forbidden.

Fortunately we struck on a day when a monk was opening the doors and he allowed us in, but forbade us to take photographs, so we have none to share with you on this review. (Perhaps like the paintings in the tombs in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, they are frightened that flashlight will deteriorate the paintings).

The murals, some of them dating back hundreds of years, are colourful depictions of the Buddha's 10 previous lives.

Why these treasures are not more publicly available is a mystery.

visit here to discover peace of mind. It contains lot of mural temple paintings and some are very old but you will have difficulty in seeing the temple paintings at the site, because the Ubosoth usually is closed to the general public.

I have been three times to this temple and the calm and peace I feel here is just unbelievable. Especially if you can find a monk and speak with them for some time.
