Wat Sawang Arom is located in Ban Bang Mon, Tambon Ton Pho, in the Municipality of Mueang Sing Buri, about 2 km from the old City Hall toward the Chao Phraya River.
The temple is a centre 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.
