Wat Yanasangwararam was constructed in 1976 for Somdet Phra Yanasangwon, the present Supreme Patriarch, and later was supported by His Majesty the King. At the entrance are situated international pavilions presenting each country's national architectural style around the pond. Within the compound of the temple are the Mondop where a replica of the Buddha's footprint is enshrined, a large Chedi containing the relics of Lord Buddha, as well as, his enlightened followers, and Wihan Phra Yanaret.
