Wat Pho Chai Na Phueng  is situated at Ban Na Phueng, Tambon Na Phueng. The temple is assumed to have been constructed during the late period of the Ayutthaya Empire. Enshrined within the abbot’s cell is the Prachao Ong Saen Buddha image, an ancient image of the town for many generations.

 

The image is sitting cross - legged with an oval face, a flame - like spire at the top of the image’s hair, and a cloth over the image’s shoulder made of gold, silver, and copper alloy. It is assumed to be the Chiang Saen style of art. Besides, within the compound of the Wihan or locally called Aram are mural paintings of the Buddha’s biography and local literature.

 

The north side of the mural states that the paintings were made in 1852 during the reign of King Rama IV. At the outside this same Ubosot are paintings which were later created in 1916. It can be considered as a very precious ancient monument and object of Loei province.
