Wat Dab Pai

Wat Dab Pai is located on Singharatch Road. In the past this temple was called Wat A-Pai or Wat Tung Kra Dang. Legend says that a monk called Phraya A-Pai, who was very sick and could not be cured, came to this temple and prayed for good health in front of an image of the monk, Dab-Pai. He recovered immediately. In gratitude he reconstructed the temple and changed its name to Wat Dab Pai and settled his family nearby. Today devout Buddhists still come to the temple to pray for good health. There is a sacred well in front of the wiharn, from which the King draws water to bathe images of the Lord Buddha.
