Old & New

Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat, right in the center of Supan Buri City, is a mixture of the old and the new.

The most impressive are the old temples dating back hundreds of years.

Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat holds one of the most revered Buddha images in Thailand, the so-called Phra Phuttha Chinnarat.

This is still a practising temple with monks living in more modern quarters and praying and conducting their services in more modern temples.

But I was disappointed. While I am a realist and recognise the upkeep of historic sites like this cost bank rolls, this temple complex is not only not well maintained, in many areas it is downright dirty and strewn with rubbish, dog droppings and other detritus, including the various pools which are now full of stagnant water.

Very old temple. Quiet. Locals praying without any disturbance from us. Little more serene than the larger younger ones

Massive Chedi.

Most people visit to see the massive and most revered Buddha statue. The older parts of the site are interesting to walk around.

It's interesting
As with most tourist attractions that are cultural in nature it is worth the visit.
This is another significant part of Thai religious history.

An interesting ancient site

There are two sides of this temple. The old section is not in a very good state but is worth seeing. The main attraction is the chedi (thai word for stupa). It is built in the Ayutthaya style and looks like a typical Indian temple symbolizing Mount Meru. It once contained some relics from Buddha. It is about 600 years old. In the nearby pavilions, there is a collection of very old Buddha statues. But there is also a more modern addition, which looks like a Thai temple. By the way, the Thai temple nest to the chedi contains an incredible collection of Buddhas of all sizes.
