This temple is in the municipal area by the Bang Pakong River.  Built in late Ayutthaya Period, with its original name of “Wat Hong”, it is the location of Phra Phutthasothon or Luang Pho Sothon, the important Buddha image in the attitude of meditation with a width of 1.65 meters and a height of 1.48 meters high. According to the legend, this Buddha image had been floated along the river, before being placed here at this temple.  The original image was a beautiful Buddha image, but later on cement was placed on the image to prevent from burglary.  Worshippers from all walks of life come to pay respect to this most reputed image by pasting gold leaves on the image.

The present chapel (ubosot) is a new, beautiful, and gigantic building which has  replaced the old one. The chapel actually depicts the style of the applied Rattanakosin period..
