Wat Prayunwongsawat Worawihan วัดประยุรวงศาวาส

The temple was built during the reign of King Rama III of the Thai Rattanakosin Kingdom. He was the king of Siam from 1824–1851. Rama III was the elder brother of Mongkut who succeeded him as King Rama IV in 1851. Rama IV became famous beyond Thailand, after being portrayed in The King and I film and stage productions.

The temple is also called Wat Prayoon and locally Wat Rua Lek (rua – fence lek – iron) and we shall find out later why.

During a local festival in Thonburi in January 2014, a highlight of the festival was the presentation of this Award of Excellence for the restoration of the 60.5m-high chedi in this temple.


'Wat Prayurawongsawat Worawihan is a "second class level" of royal temples.




It was restored in 2009. A museum at the temple displays relics found during restoration.
