History
The name of Wat Phleng, originally called "Ban Phleng", is derived from the legend of the parents of music reflecting an amusing way of life of the people in the area surrounded by nature, river, canals, plantations of the Wat Phra Christ Phra Haruthai community, Wat Phleng, which is the center of Christians in the community, has been founded by Mr. Pan (a former abbot of Wat Bang Kluai, Bangkhanathee District, Samut Songkhram) for the group of Christians. In 1850, Father Anthony Au La Bardelle (a missionary abbot of Wat Bang Nok Khwaek) met Mr. Pan (an abbot of Wat Bang Kluai) and Mr. Pan became interested in the doctrine. After learning the doctrine for a few years, he became a Christian in 1864 when he was 67 years old, with the name "Paulo". Later, Mr. Paolo Pan came back to Ban Phleng to live with his relatives and the community of Christianity was born and extended by the relatives of Mr. Paolo Pan.
