Wat Paramaiyikaat

Great murals

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

This old monastery on Ko Kret was built by Mon immigrants over 200 years ago and was originally known as Wat Pak Aom. Over time the wat was allowed to deteriorate until King Rama V stepped in, had it restored and dedicated to his grandmother and in 1884 King Chulalongkorn visited and deposited a holy relic. Although the wat is best known for its reclining Buddha and its Mon style architecture, it's the mural painings of the daily life for a monk that are really special and are definitely worth seeing.
