The Wat Sothon Wararam Worawihan (Sothon Wararam Worawihan Temple) stands on the banks of the Bang Pakong River in Mueang Chachoengsao. It was built in the 18th century, in the later period of the Ayutthaya city state, and was initially called Wat Hong.
The temple houses an impressive statue of Buddha that is close to two meters high and 1.65 meters in width. It sits atop a throne with four tiers. It shows Buddha in a meditative state. This form of Buddha is revered as Phra Phuttha Sothon. Legend has it that the bronze statue was found in the river. Once it was established in the temple it was covered in cement to dissuade thieves from stealing it.
