Wat Pa Pradu


Located on Sukhumvit Road, Wat Pa Pradu was constructed in the Ayutthaya Period and is one of the area’s leading temples. It features a large reclining Buddha which is over 11 metres long and over 3 metres high. What is unique about the Buddha is that it reclines on its left side rather than the usual right side. This difference makes the image highly revered amongst local people.

How to get there: Wat Pa Pradu is located in central Rayong and easily accessible by tuk-tuk and songtaew.



Originally unsheltered, a viharn was built over it in 1981.
