Wat Kalayanamit sits along the west bank of the Chao Phraya and is popular among the Chinese community. The temple was founded by a Chinese nobleman who donated land to built the temple. The viharn is built inThai style, but other temple structures were built in Chinese style. Inside the viharn is a huge Buddha named Phraputtatrirattananayok, measuring 15 meters tall and 11 meters wide - so large that it nearly fills the interior of the hall. During Chinese New Years Wat Kalayanamit is crowded with thousands of Chinese and Thai-Chinese worshipers and visitors.
