Wat Phai Lom  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Wat Phai Lom dates from the end of the Ayutthaya era in the 18th century. Unlike other monasteries in the area, it was abandoned before being taken over slightly in recent years to keep it better.
Despite everything, there is not much left, except the rear part of an Ubosot, the front part having disappeared, which means that without the metal roof added to protect the structure, the two restored Buddhas of the place would be in the open air.
Around the main altar are several old half-destroyed sandstone and brick statues.
Beyond these two photogenic statues, a second room at the back of the Ubosot is intriguing for its many original stucco patterns that have withstood the ravages of time. Although in smaller quantities, they are also found on the back facade of this ordination room.
In the immediate extension of the Ubosot, a pavilion houses a period Buddha named Luang Po Paleilaļ, named after this posture where the Buddha receives offerings from a monkey and an elephant who watched over him when he s took refuge in a forest, in order to get away from the dissensions in the emerging monastic community.
