WAT THONG PA MO (วัดทองปามอ)
Wat  Thong Pak Mo or the "Golden Monastery at the Mouth of Khlong Mo" was
located on the city island in the
Historical Park area in Pratu Chai sub-district.

The monastery was situated between Khlong Chakrai Yai and Khlong Chakrai Noi, and
south of
Khlong Pa Mo. It stood southeast of Wat Pa Fai.

There are no traces anymore visible of the monastery above ground level.

Historical data about the monastery and its construction are unknown.

The site is indicated on
Phraya Boran Rachathanin's [PBR] map drafted in 1926 and
denominated Wat Thong Pak Mo (วัดทองปากหม้อ). ปากหม้อ means "Mouth of the
Pot" and is as thus a bit a strange denomination for a temple. More likely it is a miswriting
on PBR's map, which should be correctly read as Pa Mo, referring to the Pa Mo canal,
which ran north of the temple.

Wat Thong Pak Mo on PBR map matches with Wat Thong Pa Mo Yai on the mid-19th
century map.
