Wihan Chamlong  - The imitation image of Luangpho Sothon is enshrined in the Wihan Chamlong (imitation image hall). Since the old Ubosot was dilapidated and narrow, it was demolished and replaced by a new one. The imitation image of Luangpho Sothon was moved from the old ordination hall to the Wihan Chamlong for the general public to pay homage as usual. The image hall is open from 7.00 a.m. – 4.30 p.m. on weekdays, and from 7.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m. at weekends.
