This place is also a historically important place of Ayutthaya.

Another important building inside Thammaram Temple is Ubali Museum which was built in A.D. 2015 – 2016 to tell story of Phra Ubali because, according to the history, this temple was the place that Phra Ubali Maha Thera  and Phra Ariyamuni Maha Thera, who were assigned by His Royal Highness Phraphuttha Kosachan of Phutthai Sawan Temple to be Preceptors to travel to Sri Lank in B.E. 2296 (A.D. 1753) to give ordination to monkshood to Ceylonese young men in accordance with order by King Boromkot because Buddhism had perished from that kingdom. Since then, Siamese Buddhism has occurred in Sri Lanka.
