Legend of Somdej Phra Puttajarn To Promransri, Thailand

Wat RaiKing

A legend says it was built in the time of King Rama the Fourth. Somdej Phra Puttajarn To persuaded the local people to build the temple and then moved one of the Buddha images which was Luangpor Wat Raikhing to be the center piece in the temple. A Second legend says the temple had already existed, and the Buddha image was brought from Sala Poon Warawiharn Temple to be the centerpiece. Since this Buddha did not have a name, the people then called it "Luangpor Wat Raikhing" or the Buddha of Rai Khing Temple. Every year, there is a festival to worship the Buddha image. Wat Rai Khing was renamed "Monkol Chindaram (Rai Khing) Temple" in 1913. The centerpiece Buddha, called Luangpor WatRaikhing, was unique with the figure in the Chiang Saen era style, the hands in the Sukhothai style and the face in the Rattanakosin style.
