Wat Rakhang - Phra Tripitaka Hall

The Tripitaka Hall is one of the beautiful buildings in the temple stands at the back towards the west of the Ubosot. The outer wall of this hall is painted red. Inside there are mural paintings by Phra Achan Nak who was a well-known artist in the court of the King Rama I.

The Tripitaka Hall was originally the residence of King Rama I when he was still Phra Ratchawarintra when Thonburi still the capital.

The gate of Tripitaka Hall was changed to a new one during my visit in year 2008 and 2009. The old one was stored inside the Tripitaka Hall.
Inside the Tripitaka hall,you can see a portrait of King Rama I when he was still Phra Ratchawarintra.
Phra Nak Prok Buddha is venerates on the altar.
