Wat Thammikkarat has been related to many Ayutthayan kings including Prince Uthumphon of Ayutthaya and his royal page named Hong. Both entered the Buddhist priesthood at this temple in the late Ayutthaya period. Hong, the officer of a royal household, later went to war with Phraya Tak and was promoted to General Phraya Phet Phichai.
Upon entering the wiharn compound where the king and his courtiers listened to the sermon, today you will still find a giant bronze head dating back to the U-Thong period. The original is now located at the Chao Sam Phraya Museum.
Both naga and singh were influenced by the ancient Khmer art. Singh, the lion figure, was believed to protect the temple. The naga, the multi-headed serpent, at the railing is the analogy as the holy bridge linking the human world and heaven together.
