at Bang-Gapom is an ancient temple believed to have been constructed in the year BE 2312 or in the Ayuttaya period. Who actually built the temple is unknown for sure but legend chronicles the story of a wealthy wicker ware merchant that traded technology to the military in exchange for a sacred Buddhist statue.

A small temple, Wat Lae Wihan, was constructed to house the image. The temple was camouflaged with wicker ware to protect it from enemy forces, hence the more descriptive name Bang-Gapom.It is also believed that King Chakri ordained at this temple during the reign of Somdej Loetla Nabhalai, the monk responsible for the beautiful wall murals
