Description
Buddha’s relics are the cremains of Lord Buddha which is the spiritual attachment of all Buddhists. In this world, the Buddha’s relics are contained in several places for us to pay respect for propitiousness. In Thailand, various historic sites and temples are home to the Buddha’s relics which are the sanctity that Thai people have worshiped for ages.
Wat Phra That Sawi in Sawi District in Chumphon Province is an important temple of Sawi District that Sawi District residents revere and is considered 1 of the 3 Buddha’s relics in the southern region. The stupa is a golden-bell-shaped-pagoda. It is assumed to be built in the Ayutthaya period. The legend says that Phra Chao Si Thammasokkarat was entrenched in Sawi District and a peculiar incident occurred. Many crows flew around the ruined brick remains. His Majesty then ordered to remove the bricks, found the Buddha’s relics in the casket and ordered to build the pagoda to contain the Buddha’s relics. Later, there was a significant restoration and the construction of the new pagoda to cover the old one. From the past to present, the Buddha’s relics are over 700 years old and has been the spiritual attachment for a long period of time.
Every year, there is a robe changing ceremony for Phra Borommathat Sawi on Asalha Puja Day which is a sacred ceremony that the villagers place a great importance on and receive the robe for the ceremony from HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. It certainly brings delight to the people in Chumphon Province and Sawi District.
For those of you who have a chance to visit the southern region with the intention to pay respect to Phra Borommathat Chaiya in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, please do not forget to stop by to respect Phra Borommathat Sawi for your auspiciousness. Additionally, you can say that you have paid respect to all the 3 Buddha’s relics of the southern region.
