Following the Thai Forest Tradition and the teachings of Ajahn Bhuridatto, This temple is located in isolation and surrounded by three mountains and abundant forest. Here, it is peaceful so it is suitable for anyone who wanted to learn dhamma and practice meditation. Its original name was Wat Trok Sueng which was an ancient village and it was just a house of priest at that time. There were only a small compartment and a few monks living there. The current name was called by locals as the temple had a roof-like-boat, so called in Thai as Pratun, so the name was changed in 2543 B.E since. At that time, another well-known Buddhist master, Aonsri Thanwaro, was relocated here as a chief of monks. Furthermore, besides he was a model of meditation for medal development, he also initiated other development project as a foundation for the next generational though he pass away since 2551 B.E. Currently, the master Yuthana Akayuthano is the abbot who succeeded these projects.

                Phra Maha Chedi-Ubosot This is another project that the master Aonsri had left for the next generation. Originally, when he did meditation he often had auspice that he saw a light beam moving around so he had recognized that the current location was previous location of a small Buddha’s relics but it was lost by that time. Therefore, in 2549 B.E. the Chedi was to build hosting the relics after it was given by the Supreme Patriarch.

                Phra Maha Chedi-Ubosot is specially designed to have a chedi covering an octagon monastery on the top of it. Inside it was a contemporary design. The principle Buddha was located there and this was an imaitation of Phra Buddha Shinnasee as well as the statue image of the master Aonsri Thanwaro and his ashes. For those who are interested in dhamma and medication they can visit anytime. For women, they will be under super vision of nuns, while men will be supervised by monks. The abbot will come out daily for dhamma discussion after the breakfast.
