Wat Chedi Hoi's History

       This temple was built in 1995 by a monk named “Phra Kru Sunthon” or “Luang Phor Thong Klang Suntaro.” The temple’s history is fascinating because it arose from a pilgrimage in Burma during which Phra Kru Sunthon met Phra Ajarn Silbanta for a year. He studied the magic until he was clearly wise, then returned to Ong Juk cave in Si Sawat District, Kanchanaburi Province. When he stayed in the cave where his visions were born, it was a big city called Rattanawadee, and he was the governor of the city.

While digging a pond to create a reservoir for watering medicinal plants, he came across a giant oyster buried under the ground that is thousands of years old. Finally, he brought naked giant oysters discovered to build a massive shell pagoda and established the temple known as “Wat Chedi Hoi” until today.
