Wat Chonprathan Rangsan Located at Mu 3, Ban Chatsan in Tambon Sam Ngao, around 5
km from Bhumibol Dam, this temple was built by the Royal Irrigation Department. Since
the construction of Bhumibol Dam caused flooding over the community area of Tambon
Ban Na, the villagers were evacuated to the area allocated by the Department.
The temple was established to replace the eight temples which were flooded in 1959;
namely, Wat Ban Huai, Wat Si Thaen, Wat Don Kaeo, Wat Luang, Wat Tha Duea, Wat Tha
Pong, Wat Umwap, and Wat Phrathat Loi. Important items of each of the eight temples
which were moved to be maintained in this temple are the Lord Buddha’s relics, Phrathat
Loi – the sacred relics, the umbrella at the pagoda’s top, the three bronze Buddha
images called Luangpho Thanchai, bronze Buddha images in different sizes and attitudes,
the gilded casket containing Buddha’s teachings, wooden cabinets, etc.
