Wat Chankapho  is in Tambon Bang Toei, on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, six kilometres from the city hall. It was constructed by the Mons during the reign of King Rama II and was called Wat Kwo, meaning Chankapho –  Vatica diospyroides Sym. - which for the Mons is an auspicious tree similar to the golden shower. Inside the temple is a cultural hall collecting Mon objects d’art. There is also a project to preserve the fish species in front of the temple. Besides, the temple is an important ceremonial venue of the Pathum Thani locals such as Ok Hoi Pachu, Takhap Flag competition, a ceremony offering food to 100 monks, etc.

 

The Supreme Artist Hall  is located at Khlong (Canal) 5 in Khlong Luang district. It is evident to the Thai People that His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej has taken an active interest in all kinds of Art.
