The Prang (Khmer style stupa) with surrounding cloister are its principle edifices. Outside the cloister, a stone engraving of Lord Buddha's Foot Print had been found.
Wat Worapho is located on the city island on the corner of U-Thong Road and Khlong Tho (Khlong Cha Krai Yai). It is directly west of the Royal Palace, but can only be entered via U-Thong Road. It is an active monastery with monks.

In the reign of King Borommakot its name was changed to "Wat Worapho" such a group of monks had once travelled to Lanka (Sri Lanka) and a Buddhist mission had brought back the Phra Si Maha Pho or the Bodhi Tree to be planted in this temple.
