Wat Phra Non Chaksi – Singburi
This temple is also denominated WAT PHRA NON CHAKKRASI WORAWIHAN.
Wat Phra Non Chaksi is located in the province of Singburi. It’s worth to visit it. Firstly, It’s one one the oldest temple in Thailand, maybe build before the kingdom of Ayuthaya.
Secondly, this temple have two golden reclining Buddha. The biggest one is particularly impressive due to his size between 46 meters to 50 meters long. A Buddha in the style of Sukkhotai.
But personally i prefer the smaller one with is myriad of square gold leaves stick on his full stone body (denominated Phra Khan). This two Buddha images were build under the reign of king Rama V.
