Wat Boromwong Isra Wararam Worawiharn  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Wat Boromwong Isra Wararam Worawiharn is the second class royal monastery. It is situated 220 meters from the west bank of Pa-sak River, in Panead village, Suan Prik subdistrict, Phra Nakorn Si Ayutthaya district, Ayutthaya province.
Formerly it was a common temple named Wat Thalay Yaa because it is located in the middle of a grassy plain which prone to flood every year or the name might has been derived from Thamlay Yaa.
Wat Boromwong Isra Wararam Worawiharn is one of an ancient temple built when Ayutthaya was the capital city. After it has been deserted for a long time, Somdej Phra Boromwong Ther Chaofah Maha Mala Krom Phraya Banrab Porapak considered that this peaceful place was suitable for monks and novices to practice Dhamma. The establishment of the temple took place during the reign of King Rama IV, completed in 1875 and became the royal monastery when King Rama V ruled the country.
The ordination hall (ubosot) houses the main Buddha image in meditation posture measuring 1 meter wide at its lap. The assembly hall (viharn) with three balconies was elaborately masoned with bricks and floored with marble. The walls and windows were beautified by glazed tiles. Its arched door, windows, gable apex, ridges on the roof and pediment were carved in Kruea Wan Maha Mala pattern. 
Not only that the temple is the memorial of Somdej Phra Boromwong Ther Chaofah Maha Mala Krom Phraya Banrab Porapak (the founder of Malakul family), but it also houses a number of rare portraits of King Rama V.
Due to its religious and historical significance, Wat Boromwong Isra Wararam Worawiharn is worth a visit.
