In the past, the scripture repository is normally raised on piles over a pond to protect the palm leaf manu scripts from ants and termites. The build ing of this type can hardly be found any where in Thailand today. The one at Muang Boran has been built and preserved for posterity.
The repository was brought from Wat Yai, Bang Khonthi in Samut Songkhram Province. Its original building, standing in a pond at Wat Yai, was much dilapidated. The structure is likely modeled after the Ayutthaya architectural style. The walls on the outside are invaluable old murals of the Life of the Buddha which are painted with tempera sketches gilded with gold. The murals are faded now.
