WAT NANG KUI วัดนางกุย - Ayutthaya Thailand - Built in 1587
Wat Nang Kui วัดนางกุย
Wat Nang Kui or the Monastery of the Lady named Kui is an active temple located
off the city island in the southern area. The monastery is situated along the Chao Phraya River. To its west side lies Wat Khun Phrom and to its south Wat Mai Bang Kaja.
The monastery was built in 1587, a few years after the first fall of Ayutthaya. The construction was sponsored by a wealthy woman called Lady Kui, thus the name of the temple. After the second fall of Ayutthaya the monastery was left empty and neglected until in the Bangkok period during the Reign of King Rama III, the monastery was renovated.
The temple is actually known for its sandstone Buddha image, Mae Takhian Thong and Luang Pho Yim statue.
Historical data about the monastery is unknown.
From the temple you have nearly a straight view on Pom Phet or the Diamond Fort. It is assumed to have been occupied by the Burmese army in the last battle for Ayutthaya in 1767.
Vihara of Mae Takhian Thong
The vihara of Mae Takhian Thong was builtt in 2000. The statue of Mae Takhian Thong was handcarved from an old Takhian tree which stood on the grounds of the temple since its establishment. The tree was worshipped by the local community. The Thakian tree (Malabar Ironwood) is believed to house the female spirit Nang Takhian like banana trees house the spirit of Nang Tani.
Around Thailand you will find trees wrapped with cloth, meaning that spirits inhabit
In 1995 and 1996, Ayutthaya had sever floods for an extended period of time. A lot of trees
died because of the floods, including the old Thakian tree. In 1998 the tree was finally cut down. From the large trunk, the wooden image of Mae Takhian Thong was sculpted. Over the stump of the tree a vihara was built and the sculpture of Mae Takhian Thong, containing the tree’s spirit, was positioned on top of the old stump.
