Abstract

Sam Khok is an ancient town and Mon people had resided there since the reign of King Narai the Great. The ethnic people were mainly farmers as well as earthenware and brick producers and sellers. They liked to sell their ware on boats in rivers. The products included salt, salted crabs, fermented fish insides, fermented soybeans, pickled garlic, and dates. The ethnic people like to construct a temple as their spiritual center in their community. The first migrants in Sam Khok District settled in Wat Phlapsuthawat, Wat Thaykoh, Wat Metarang, and Wat Saladaeng Nua Villages. Wat Saladaeng Village in Sam Khok District is a Mon village and 90% of the villagers had been merchants in river routes since the early Ratanakosin Period. The village temple is an old temple built in the reign of King Rama II and it is a Thammayut temple. In addition to being a spiritual center of the villagers, Mon monks have played an important role as community leaders in teaching Buddhist doctrines to laypeople and ordinary Mon youths to study Buddhist teachings. Buddhist Mons have been religious with an aim to eliminate defilements and to attain spiritual enlightenment. As an ancient temple, many ancient Buddha images were discovered when the ordination hall was dismantled in the reign of King Rama IV. As merchants selling items along river routes, the villagers had to build boats for their trades. There were three types of boats, namely Sam Pan, Khang  Kradan, and Krasaeng, which had been improved and developed for use in accordance with changing socio-cultural contexts in various periods.
