Wat Nakhon Chum Situated 9 kilometres from the town of Phichit on the Phichit Wang Chik road in Tambon Muang Kao, Wat Nakhon Chum is an ancient temple that is believed to have been constructed during the early

Sukhothai period some 800 years ago. The most important structure of this temple is the

Ubosot that  has been built  with brick and mortar.  So as to provide proper ventilation

inside the temple, a separate arrangement has been made. Instead of  keeping windows,

narrow openings have been made throughout the walls that allow the passage of to and

fro air  thereby providing  ample ventilation and also an  ambient temperature inside. This

Style is e xactly similar  to temples that were constructed during the  Ayutthaya period.

Present inside the Ubosot is a large image of Lord Buddha cast in Sukhothai style. This

image is believed to be 800 years old. Also present inside the temple is an old main shrine hall. Significance of Wat Nakhon Chum in the history of Phichit province can be gauged by the fact that this temple was once used as a place where oath taking ceremony pledging allegiance to the monarch used to take place through water drinking. Currently, most parts of the monastery are in a dilapidated state and require repair and renovation.
