The organizing committee has set up an excursion for visiting historical or several noteworthy places within the town of Phitsanulok to make you know more of the town. The trip will be on Tuseday 5 July 2016 (13.00PM-17.00PM).
Join us the sightseeing tour visiting the key attractions of Phitsanulok province that are the historical prides of both Thai nation and the city.
The most unique sight of the city is Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat, or simply “Wat Yai” to locals, which houses Phra Phuttha Chinnarat, one of the most beautiful and revered golden Buddha images of the kingdom. Walking around to murals of the chapel to discover the gallery lined with Buddha images and explore several other revered Buddha images around the temple. Cross the street and visit Wat Nang Phaya (literally means, “The Empress Temple”), appreciate the golden Buddha image similar to Phra Phuttha Chinnarat which is famous for extensive collection of the highly coveted Nang Phaya (small Buddha images used as amulets). Visit Wat Ratburana (literally, King restoration), an ancient temple built in the early fifteenth century, containing a classic bell-shaped stupa that is now exposing to our sight only with bricks. Lastly, visiting Wang Chan Palace (literally, The Lunar Palace), the former abode of King Naresuan The Great that was just unearthed by the historians, indicating the true resident of the king since 15 A.D. Within the area located the shrine of King Naresuan The Great, which used to be the compound of the Phitsanulok Phittayakom School. The shrine consists a seated figure of King Naresuan The Great, pouring lustral water from a golden container and ceremoniously declaring Ayutthaya’s independence. Finally, take a bow to the sunset of Phitsanulok and bring back full memories of love and impressions to your country.
