The construction was resumed during the reign of his son King Jessadabodindra (Rama III) who completed a 20-meter-high pagoda. After a few years King Mongkut (Rama IV) increased the height of the Chedi to 38 meters.
Since it’s situated on a island hence the name Phra Samut Chedi or “Chedi in the middle of the water”.
