Nice large complex in the city center. Visited on Saturday late morning and it was not very busy. Reclining budha temples are unique, not many around.

Another very well looked after temple. The site has many buildings and a must do is the walk around the shrine as you walk around the building you hit the bells as you pass bye. Thsi is a very nice place to visit.

Unspectacular

The temple is one of the landmarks of Rayong, but I personally found it quite average. The temple dates back around 400 years, but there is only a Chinese style Ubosot left from Ayutthaya period, all other buildings are quite recent. The temple is not touristic at all and popular with the locals.

Reclinging Buddha
Jun 2017 • Friends
This week I am playing host and tour guide to friends from Australia who have not been to Thailand before. I took them to Wat Pa Pradu to show them a typical Thai Buddhist temple.

Wat Pa Pradu traces its origins back to the Auytthaya era but many additions and renovations have been made over the years, including the temple that houses a reclining Buddha, which was built in 1981.

The Buddha, nearly 12 meters long and nearly four meters high, is unusual in that it lies on its left side, as opposed to the usual right side. It is heavily coated with gold leaf, pasted on by generations of the faithful.

Wat Pa Pradu is a complex of temples and buildings and with their rich red and gold colouring and ornate architecture, provide an interesting insight into Thai culture, religion and art.

Unique reclining buddha
Mar 2017 • Friends
A large reclining Buddha decorated with gold leaves is the main attraction and attracts many visitors. Large area to accommodate. Also impressive and well maintained other statues.

One reason the Buddha image is revered by the locals

The current car park is very convenient if you can not visit this temple from Monday to Friday. It is very convenient if you come in Saturday - Sunday.
Wat Pa Pradu This temple is an 11.95-meter-long left-sided reclining Buddha image (normally a reclining Buddha is right-sided). Many people come to worship.

Unspoilt. Visited by locals. No English signs. Asked taxi driver to stop by on way to Rayong for bus. Short visit but nice.

beautiful temple with most special reclining buddha
Jan 2016 • Couples
The reclining buddha in Wat Pra Pradu is lying the other way round as the other reclining buddhas in Thailand. Supposedly the only one this way.
Apart from this there is a small temple building close to the reclining buddha which you walk around for 4 to 9 times, and with every round you have to crawl under the building. It is said to bring luck to you, and so many people do it.
