Wat Si Thep Pradittharam temple was originally called Wat Sri Khun Muang and was built by a ruler called Thongthip Mungklakiri in 1859. The place was renovated in 1902 by a monk named Luang Pu Jahn Kemiyo and was completed in 1906; it is also at this time when the temple’s name was also changed to Wat Si Thep Pradittharam. Luang Pu Jahn Kemiyo was a monk who accepted monkhood at the age of 20 and continued till his death at an age of 92 in 1973.
The temple has an ordination hall which has about 108 murals on the walls which makes it more beautiful. The Buddha image enshrined in this temple is said to be one of the most important ones as it is believed to have been built at the same time when Buddha images of Phra Suk and Phra Sai were built.
