Samut Prakan is an ancient city that bears the heritage of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. This royal monastery was built during the late Ayutthaya period. Alongside typical Thai architecture, the temple is also decorated with Chinese ceramics. In the bend of the Chao Phraya River, the Phlaeng Faifa fort dates back to the reign of King Rama II.
The City Pillar Shrine is a sacred place, located in the middle of a very busy street, in the heart of the town. The Chinese influence on the Thai architecture is visible in this Shrine, where candles are lit with the hope of good luck.
