Wat Bang Chang Nuea

Wat Bang Chang Nuea Temple was built in 1827 under the reign of King Rama III. It was originally called Wat Mai Temple. In 1916, when Somdet Kromphraya Vajirananavarorasa, the supreme patriarch, visited temples in Sam Phran, he had the name changed to Wat Bang Chang Nuea Temple. An important ancient building of the temple is the old, small Uposatha hall located in the front near the Tha Chin River. There are three Buddha images placed inside, built out of bricks and coated with lime in the Rattanakosin style of art. In 1950, a new Uposatha hall is built, and a ceremony of casting the principal Buddha image with gold is held on April 8, 1976. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the present king, presided over the ceremony casting the replica of Phra Phuttha Chinnarat image that is placed inside the new Uposatha hall, and His Majesty also planted a Bodhi tree on the left side of the hall. Wat Bang Chang Nuea was officially established in 1927. It was granted Visumgamasama on February 3, 1950. The famous Theras of the temple were Luang Pu Joi, the 2nd abbot, Phra Khru Parat Phan (Dissasuvanno), the 5th abbot, and Phra Khru Vutthikansophon (Sa-ngat Ukkhaseno), the 6th abbot. Phra Phiphatsueksakon is the present abbot of the temple. (Information source: http://www.m-culture.in.th/moc_new/album/150597/วัดบางช้างเหนือ/)
