The wihan at Wat Phrao, Tak วิหารวัดพร้าว ตาก

The wihan at Wat Phrao, Tak วิหารวัดพร้าว ตาก
The wihan at Wat Phrao is located within the community of the floating market. It was formerly located in Tak Province, being one of the oldest monasteries in the province. The grand throne hall of the wihan is a local architectural style of Tak dating back to the Ayutthaya period. The wihan had been dismantled and laid on the ground while a new brick wihan was being constructed.

Muang Boran brought the hall and reconstructed it in the floating market community. This purpose is to preserve the original local art and architecture for our future generations.

The aesthetic significance of the building are the stucco motif on the portico, roof decorations, the carved wooden roof supports or Khan Tuay and the wood carving slab below the portico decorated with colorful glass which were splendidly created by the local artisans.
