Wat Bungpayasurin was built around BE 2431 (1888) during King Rama 5 period by Phraya Surin Rajsena Pung Sinseni who was of nobility with the royal family.
The amulets of Phra Krut Bungpayasurin were created from cement powder and old crusted seashell. Luangpu Thong Wat Rajyotha helped in the making and blessing of all the amulets. It was then placed under a Buddha statue and housed into a pagoda. Some were also found elsewhere around the temple.
Phraya Surin initiated the making of the amulets for future generations use during time of crisis. As such, it is believed that the amulets of Krut Bungpayasurin can protect the wearer from misfortune, against weapons and against any other dangers.
The 1st time these amulets surfaced was during the Indochina War. Field Marshal Pitboonsongkram requested 3000 pieces to be distributed among the army and police joining the Indochina War ~BE 2493 (1947-1954). The 2nd release was in BE 2515 (1972) summing 5000 pieces combined.
It is said the army and police during time of war experienced many miracles while wearing the Phra Somdej Krut Bungpayasurin Pim Pokpor amulets.
Blessed by Luang Phor Thong of Wat Rajyotha in BE 2433. Chao Phrya Suren was nephew of Chai Phraya Bodin (Sing Singhasen), the defense minister and regent of King Rama III. Luang Phor Daeng Singhaseni was Chao Phraya Suren’s nephew and is said to have donated sacred soils, powders and oils to create these amulets.
Lp Thong is the most famous monk originating from Wat Lard Buakhao, (Wat Rachyota), Bangkok. Several decades ago many Indians lived in close proximity to the temple, most of whom were not Buddhist. In fact it was recorded that they often attempted to steal temple property and the fish from the pond. Luang Poo Tong did all he could to protect the possessions of the temple including the fish which he called upon spirits to guard. After this the intruders would only fetch out dead bones rather than fish, this frightened them sufficiently to stop future theft. It was also said that the fish transformed into leaves and as such respect for the monk grew. It was during this period that many were afflicted with deadly Cholera. Those surviving would visit the temple requesting help from the sacred monk. It is known that he would offer sacred water which not only cured them but also protected them. Many people at that time were often cursed with black magic. Lp Thong would recite sacred spells over those who believed they were affected. Once a little boy who was possessed by evil spirits was led to meet the sacred monk. Lp Thong used “Plai”, a kind of Thai Herbal Medicine, along with his sacred spells. It was known that the boy had been cursed by a practioner of black arts because of his behaviour. Fortunately he was saved by the monk. Because of all the various accounts Luang Poo Tong and his amulets are just as popular today as he was almost a century ago
Many great monks learned from LP Thong, such as LP Chong Wat Natangnok, LP Sod Wat Paknam, LP Klai Wat Suan Kan, LP Parn Wat Bang Nom Kho, LP Pheuk Wat King Keow
