Wat Wihan Thong in Phitsanulok

Wat Wihan Thong is a ruined temple near the Nan River in Phitsanulok. The temple was built sometime during the 15th Century most likely as a Royal Temple because of its proximity to the Chan Palace. The Chan Palace was a residence of the Atutthaya Kings during the 15th and 16th Centuries and the birth place of King Naresuan. King Naresuan, who ruled from 1590 to 1605, is a legendary figure in Thai history who fought and won several major battles against the Burmese who were the regional super power at the time.

Very little of the Chan Palace remains today although there is a partially completely reconstruction of the original palace on the site of the original palace. The Chan Palace and the ruins of Wat Wihan Thong are popular attractions for Thai visitors because of their association with King Naresuan.

There is also not much left of Wat Wihan Thong. The site consists of the base of stupa, which is believed to have been shaped like a Khmer style prang, a large Sukhothai style Buddha statue, and the base and circular columns of a prayer hall. The site is nonetheless worth visiting in tandem with a visit to the reconstruction of the Chan Palace and the Shrine to King Naresuan which are both very close by.
