Located on the northern bank of Khlong Samrong in Tambon Bang Phli Yai, not too far from Wat Bang Phli Yai Nai. It was constructed around 1824 and originally called Wat Klang before changing to Wat Rat Sattha Tham and eventually Wat Bang Phli Yai Klang. The temple contains an immense reclining Buddha image of approximately 53 metres long know as Somdet Phra Sakayamuni Si Sumet Bophit. There are 4 stories inside the image itself.

ワット・ソラサック




スコータイ歴史公園内の東側にある小規模の遺跡。鐘型の仏塔の土台の周囲に24頭の象の彫刻が飾られていることから、別名ワット・チャーンロームとも呼ばれます。境内に発見された1412年の碑文によると、この寺院はインタラソラサックという人物が、後にタンマラーチャー3世(在位1400-1419)となる王子から土地を寄贈されつくったものとされています。象は大王の乗り物との考え方があったため、仏塔の周囲に24頭の象を飾ったとか。1416年に仏塔、本堂、礼拝堂が完成したときには、王族らが祝賀のために訪れ、近くにあった宮殿で宿泊施設したとの記述もありました。また、当時この寺院の北側で、ワット・ソンカオとワット・ムンムアンと呼ばれる寺院も同時に建立したそうですが、現在は礼拝堂の土台と小さな仏塔の跡しか残っていません。

Upon its entombment in the main chedi it reportedly split into two pieces. One piece was buried at this wat, and the other at Wat Doi Suthep.
