Wat Rong Chang
Located in Tambon Rong Chang, this monastery is on Phichit-Wang Chik Road about 5 kms. far from town.
During the reign of Phraya Kottabong, this area was formerly called "Kong Chang" (Elephant gathering)
because it was a rest area of elephant and mahouts. Within the monastery compound,there are 3 giant
Buddha images in different postures: Subduing Evil, Reclining and Restraning. The most interesting thing
is the big Chedi with an underground room used for keeping the bricks that 84,000 sections of the Buddhist
Scripture are inscribed. The construction of the hidden room is based on the foreseen view that there might
be an unexpected event such as a nuclear war, which can erase the existance of the Buddhist Scripture in the
