Sim Wat Traiphum Khanachan
It is situated at Ban Tak Daet, Tambon Hua Thon. The architectural structure suggests that it is a traditional small ‘Sim’ – local dialect for Ubosot - of the Northeast with a low boundary wall. Its gable and ‘Rang Phueng’ – decoration underneath the lower tie beam – are elaborately carved. The Sim houses murals illustrating Buddhist stories. It is assumed that it dates back to around the Ayutthaya or early Rattanakosin period. Outside the Sim is situated an Isan-style Buddha image which was moved from Wat Tai Wilai Tham (same district). Sim Wat Traiphum Khanachan was renovated by the Fine Arts Department in 1998 and awarded for outstanding architecture by the Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage in the year 1998. To get there: From Mueang district, take Highway No. 214 to Highway No. 215 until reaching Suwannaphum district, then turn left and continue for 5 km.
