Wat Sakae  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Bordering the Khao Mao Canal, Wat Sakae is one of those famous temples close to Ayutthaya but which tourists do not suspect it exist.
This monastery owes its fame to its former chief abbot, named Luang Pu Du.
Luang Pu Du, who died in 1990, was appreciated for the quality of his Dharma teachings. He is also considered an arhat, a Buddhist saint, the final stage before that of Buddhahood, which is why his memory continues to this day.
A Viharn serving as a museum, open only on weekends, is also dedicated to him. This museum is easily recognizable by the effigy of the bonze preceding the entrance.
This building is also a fine example of the blend of traditional and contemporary Thai architecture, giving it a certain class with its three-level roof.
