Contact: Wat Lum Mahachai Chumpon Thanon Taksin, Tambon Tha Pradu, Amphoe Mueang, Rayong Tel. -

Located at Wat Lum Mahachai Chumpon on Taksin Road, the shrine was built to commemorate King Taksin the Great, who freed and saved Siam (former Thailand) from the ancient Burmese invasion. He had stopped here in Rayong during his rally to liberate the Kingdom of Ayutthaya from the ancient Burmese army. The legend has it that King Taksin the Great’s elephant was stabled at a large Parkia tree, which is in front of the shrine. This is a well-regarded place locals and Chinese visitors come to pray for lucks, especially during Chinese New Year and on December 28th, which is King Taksin Day.
