Every day, a large number of people come to pay homage to "Luang Por Sothon". Some will pray to have their wishes granted, and those who are successful will return to present offerings by commissioning the dancers who are on hand to perform as a way of showing gratitude. At present, the Ubosoth or main chapel is being rebuilt as the original was in a state of disrepair. The new Ubosoth is in the style of the Rattanakosin Period and will be completed in 1998. Upon completion, this temple will be the largest white marble temple in the world.
