Wat Matchimawat or Wat Klang, on Sai Buri Road, is a large temple and the most important in Songkhla. It is about 400 years old and was built in the late Ayutthaya period.
It was said that Yai Si Chan, a millionaire of Songkhla donated a large sum of money to construct the temple. Later on Wat Liap was built in the north, and Wat Pho in the south.
The people then changed the name of the temple which was situated in the middle from “Wat Yai Si Chan” to “Wat Klang” or “Wat Matchimawat”.
This temple also has the Phattharasin Museum that houses various artefacts gathered from Songkhla, Sathing Phra, Ranot, and elsewhere. Open everyday except Monday, Tuesday and public holidays during 1.00 – 4.00 p.m.
