There aren’t certain historic stories of Nong Bua temple. However, we may be able to interpret things from the murals in the temple. There are murals of steamboats and foreign soldiers on the northern wall. And, according to the history, steamboats originated in Europe and America. In Thai history, it says that steamboats first came in Thailand since the period of King Rama 4. That means, the murals and the temple itself probably developed around the period of King Rama 4 or King Rama 5.
If you want to see those murals, go inside the vihara and feast your eyes with them. They’re gorgeous and rare. They aren’t just art pieces, but also mirrors that reflect lives of people in the murals. If kids nowadays have a chance to see these, it will be good to their imagination and learning procedure. The murals may be torn and rugged, but they’re still valuable. They’re the highlight of the temple. Beside of the murals of steamboats and soldiers, there are also murals of Buddhism.
