Phra Thaen Sila Ard is a rectangle-shaped platform. There are patterns of lotus petals all around it. And, for your information, in 1908, Monthop Forest was on fire and the vihara. Phra Than Sila Ard was the only thing that survived the fire. Therefore, King Rama 5 started to renovate it. Also, the doors of Phra Thaen Sila Ard, which were once carved wooden doors, were once the doors of the vihara of Phra Buddha Chinnarat of Phitsanulok Province.
