Wat Prasat Nonthaburi

18 Bang Kruai - Sai Noi Rd, Tambon Bang Krang, Amphoe Mueang Nonthaburi, Chang Wat Nonthaburi 11000, Thailand

Buddhist Temple

Wat Prasat was built during the reign of King Narai the Great . The Ubosot, or Temple hall, boasts sophisticated craftsmanship: the upper part features a divine god riding a mythic bird-beast (a Garuda), and the finial is decorated in the Mon style, with a royal lion featured beside the finial.The reason behind the unusual shape of the building is that the shape easily allows cool air to replace hotter air as it rises.
