  • Legendary phanthai sadly wandering to see prayer and the more tragic due to the narrow lots, tall ship will head bend less, freeing Bush to consultations? He sacrificed life and never losing the Royal tradition, in.

  • The one thing that we quickly notice when we arrived is the amount of rooster statues this temple has. This is a very unique memorial site with a deep history behind it and surely worth a visit.  more »
  • A popular shrine south-west of Bangkok. There is a new “floating market” next to the Shrine. Popular with Thais
  • The PhanthaiNorasing Shrine was constructed in memory of Phanthai Norasing, a legendary coxswain of the Ekkachai royal barge, noted for his and honesty. He took responsibility for damage to the sacred figurehead of a barge he was steering when the prow hit a large tree by a river canal. It is said that PhanthaiNorasing begged the king, Phrachao Suea, to execute him in accordance with royal law. Phrachao Suea complied against his own will, then ordered the construction of a temporary shrine. Phanthai’s head as well as the broken figurehead of the Ekkachai royal barge were placed in the shrine to symbolize his honesty and loyalty. Later on, the Fine Arts Department constructed a new shrine as the original one had fallen into disrepair. Inside, there is a life-sized statue of Phanthai Norasing in the position of steering at the stern of the barge, widely respected among the locals. The shrine is surrounded by rooster statues as Panthai Norasing loved cocktail fighting. There are shades areas, stalls, an ATM and trees around the shrine as well as the remains of an old barge.
  • Many locals come here for worship of the shrine.
