Wat Traphang Ngoen known for its Lotus bud chedi with reliefs of walking and standing Buddhas.

 

The name of this temple, Wat Traphang Ngoen, means silver lake temple. Wat Traphang Ngoen contains a vihan (assembly hall) and a Sukhothai style main chedi with a lotus bud-shaped anda that sits in the east-west alignment. There is also a small ubosot to the east of both, that sits a few hundred meters away on the island at the center of the the large rectangle “silver lake”, which is accessible via a bridge from the North side.

The vihan containing the remains pillars of the assembly hall sits right in front of the main chedi. On this vihan, there is a large stuccoed image of the Buddha in the Bhumisparsha mudra, also known as “subduing Mara”. To the right, sits a smaller chedi with “rounded” corners and upper part consisting of receding storeys as well as a walking Buddha in the classic Sukhothai style.
