Wend your way through the busy Pran Nok market to find yourself at Wat Rakhang Khositaram. With its history tracing back to the Ayutthaya period, Wat Rakhang boasts the Tripitaka Hall, where tripitaka (Buddhist scriptures) revised by King Taksin are stored. During the reign of King Rama 1, a gigantic bell was discovered at the temple (hence the name Wat Rakhang or the “Temple of the Bell”). The king had the bell moved to the Grand Palace and five other bells were reconstructed to replace the ancient artifacts. The temple is also easily accessible by ferry from Chang pier.
