This renowned Buddhist temple at Wat Ratchanadda has a great historic significance as it was built on the orders of the King Nangklao also called the Rama III. He built this monument for his granddaughter, i.e., the princess Somanass Waddhanawathy. Hence, the Wat Ratchanatdaram is also called the “Temple of the Royal Niece”. This monument dates back to the year 1846. I personally love to visit historic monuments and hence, it was a delight for me to visit this place. I clicked a number of pictures of this monument, which was beautifully built by excellent craftsmen and architects in the late 18th century.
In the earlier days, the Lord Prasat was concealed behind Chalerm Thai, which is an old movie theatre. But the theatre was demolished in the year 1989 in order to improve the scenic beauty along the Ratcha Damnoen Road.
