Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang was created in the early age during B.E.2380-2400. The mould was created by wood engraving which was designed by folk craftsmen at Ban Chang Lor who assisted Somdej Toh making Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang. Almost ingredients were holy powders mixed with herbals 108 juice. The scale of Phra Somdej in early period of creation was disproportional and unsharp comparing to the late age which molds were designed by Royal Craftsmen.  The four edges were shallow concave. The amulet texture is rough type and looks naturally oldness with old stains and shallow cracks at backside. Cracks of this kind would not be found in fake Somdej amulet which is classic and original condition.

Among Thai amulets Collectors, Phra Somdej Wat Rakang are the most famous and highly sought after, not only in Thailand but also around the world. Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang is regarded as the king of Thai powder amulets and being the top five amulet in Thai Benjapakee series.

Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang was created and blessed by Somdej Phra Phutthachan Toh Phromrangsri.  The ingredients were composed of various materials. The major ingredients were five kinds of sacred powder namely Pattamung, Itthijae, Maharaj, Buddhakhun and Trainisinghae. This five sacred ingredients were added into the substance with incantation of holy-scripture, writing of sutras and holy symbols (yantra) with chalk on a board, erased and rewrite them several hundred time over.

It is quite believable that Somdej Toh had created Phra Somdej leisurely and might have to look for special occasion then made plan how many amulets to be created. It assured that Somdej Toh did not create in many numbers of Phra Somdej Wat Rakang all once for giving in a long time.

If any day Somdej Toh determined to create Phra Somdej, he would bring lime shell and others ingredients for grinding in order to get amount of Phra Somdej materials and formed into square stick then cut into pieces. Each piece was pressed on the mold which was sculptured from slate then bringing board to lay at the back of Phra Somdej then using solid or wood to knock on back of board in order to remove air and make it firmly. After that, taking board out so, it appeared scratch of board or look like betel leaf on the back of Phra Somdej. This remark is importance for Phra Somdej reservation.

Phra Somdej Wat Rakang is the most well-known amulet to both Thai people and foreigners. Phra Somdej amulets were created to inherit Buddhism so, merit people all over the world have opportunity to possess.

We believed that Phra Somdej Wat Rakhang help worshiper to have grace and mercy, good fortune, help meditation practice by wearing it on your neck or hold it in your hand and safety from all dangers.
