   Wat Phu Daan Tae or Wat Puttoh Tammataro
Catagorize: Temple
Contact: 133 Moo 1, Baan Chaimongkol, Tambol Chokechai, Amphur Nikom Kamsoi Tel. -

Wat Phu Daan Tae or Wat Puttoh Tammataro is located on highway 212, 4 kilometers away from Amphur Nikom Kamsoi at the 134th kilometre milestone at 133 Moo 1, Baan Chaimongkol, Tambol Chokechai, Amphur Nikom Kamsoi. Inside the temple, there is Father Thammajak, a big Buddha statue, located. This Buddha statue was created by plaster work in the preaching position. It is a Rattakosin architectural style designed by Father Lee Tammataro who planned to build this Buddha statue at Wat Asokaram, Samutprakarn in the position of facing out to the sea in order to be the center for the navigators and the people nearby that area. After the Father resigned, there was no one to follow up the work except for Ajarn Sompong Kantiko, the student of Father Lee, who built the temple again according to the design of Father Lee. 

The Buddha Statue was very big and faced the east side. It is around 500 meters from Chayangkul Road where it can be clearly seen. In front of the statue, there is a statue of the five Brahmins in the plaster work facing the Buddha statue which are ; Phra Anya Kothanya, Phra Wappa, Phra Patthiya, Phra Mahanama and Phra Asashi.

At the back of the Thammajak Buddha Statue is the Wheel of the Law as big as the Buddha statue. It is an interesting aspect for the people who visit here. The fingers of the Buddha Statue refers to the four Noble Truth acquired by the Buddha and the 3 ignorance omitted by the Buddha as well.
