In Buri National Museum

Admission fee is 50 baht.
This is an old temple constructed in an unusual style having iron rails as the core of the lower part. The window and door panels of the chapel were carved exquisitely by the best artisan of Sing Buri, a man by the name of Chuen Hathakosol, who devoted 10 years of his life doing this piece of work.
Wat Phra Non Chaksi
This temple is 4km. south of the town along the Sing Buri-Suphan Buri route. It houses a huge Sukhothai-style reclining Buddha image, which is revered by the local people and renowned for its large size, almost 46 meters long.
Wat Na Phrathat
This temple, first called Wat Hua Muang by the villagers, is located 1km west of Wat Phra Non Chaksi. It houses an ancient brick pagoda which was built during the ancient Khmers glory. The pagoda was later renovated during the early Ayutthaya period. This area is assumed to have been the ancient site of Sing Buri.
Wat Pho Kao Ton
This temple is near the Monument of Bang Rachan Heroes. It was the base where the Bang Rachan villagers resisted the Burmese attacks. A replica of the ancient fortress, identical to the original, was constructed. In a chapel, there is the statue of Phra Achan Thammachot, who was both a monk and a leader of the Bang Rachan's heroes.
Wat Phikun Thong
This temple in Tambon Wihan Khao, Amphoe Tha Chang, is 9km from Wat Phra Non Chaksi. Visitors come here to pay homage to the statue of Luang Pho Phae, a famous former abbot of the temple. The temple also houses Thailands largest sitting Buddha image, 23 meters wide and 42 meters high, made of concrete and decorated with golden mosaic.
Wat Phra Prang and Ancient Kilns
This ancient site is located in Tambon Choeng Klat, Amphoe Bang Rachan, 17km west of the the town. The temple contains an old pagoda of the Lop Buri style assumed to have been constructed during the reign of King Narai the Great. The pagoda measures 15 meters high and has some Buddha images at its base. Not far from the pagoda, 3-4 ruined ancient kilns have been discovered. They were used for firing earthenware during the Ayutthaya period. The kilns were relatively large and once produced jars, bowls, mortars, pots, gable tops, and floor tiles.
Old Court and City Hall
These two European style buildings are located on Wilaichit Road by the Chao Phraya River in the town. Both are constructed at the same period, some 90 years ago during the reign of King Rama V. They are still in perfect condition.
Wat Sawang Arom
Wat Sawang Arom is located in Ban Bang Mon, Tambon Ton Pho, in the Municipality of Mueang Sing Buri, about 2km from the old City Hall toward the Chao Phraya River. The temple is a center of arts concerning education, construction of the Ubosot (ordination hall), Wihan (image hall), Sala (pavilion), and particularly the sculpture of Buddha images, which has been passed down from the Ban Chang Lo School in Thon Buri district. Within the temple compound, the Nang Yai Museum has collected more than 300 perfect and playable Nang Yai great shadow puppets. Phrakhru Singhamuni, the past abbot, gathered some of the figures from the late Ayutthaya period. The others were given by Khru Pia, leader of a shadow play troupe who is well-versed in supervising and voicing the great shadow puppet play and has continued to pass down such performing art. For a show, the Nang Yai puppets are divided into 4 sets: The Great Battle (a battle against the Demon King - - Ravana), The Mongkut But Lop Battle, The Naga Noose, and The Wirun Chambang Battle. Here, there is a demonstration of a Nang Yai play.
The museum is open on Monday to Friday from 9.00 a.m. 4.00 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday from 8.30 a.m. 5.00 p.m. For those interested in the show, contact in advance at Tel. 0 3654 3212, 0 3654 3237, 08 1851 6205, 08 1802 6085.
