A Diamond-Studded Image and Museum of Renowned Monks

Wat Krathum Sueapla was built in 1772.

Artifacts at the temple include the traditional Thai meeting pavilion with the gable in angelic motifs and a century-old wooden bell.

The new meeting pavilion houses Luangpho Phet, a replica of Phra Phuttha Chinnarat in Sukhothai style, whose wrap is studded with thousands of Russian diamonds. Another pavilion houses a collection of wax-figures of more than 10 renowned monks such as Luangpu Thuat, Somdet Phra Phutthachan (To Phromrangsi), Luangpu Suk, and Luangpu Pan. All of these images are life-like.

The museum is open daily to visitors.
