Wat Phra Non Chakkrasi Worawihan
Of Thailand’s 35,000-plus temples, there are almost 300 that are classified as royal temples of varying grades. Singburi’s Wat Phra Non Chakkrasi Worawihan is a third-grade royal temple. Often known as Wat Phra Non (and sometimes as Wat Phra Non Chaksi / Jaksi), it is one of the province’s major Buddhist places of worship. It is most famous for its large Sukhothai-period reclining Buddha statue, which stretches for almost 50 metres (nearly 165 feet). The temple contains a smaller reclining Buddha image that devotees cover with small slithers of gold leaves to show respect. There are statues of the Lord Buddha in various postures, large statues of famous monks from the area, an old wooden boat, pavilions, shrines, stupas, and flowers to admire too.
