The interior side walls of the ordination hall have two sections of murals. The upper section portrays the deities of Tavatimsa heaven gathering to pay respect to Lord Buddha on his visit to preach to his mother.
The lower section, which is between each window, depicts Buddhist monks meditating about the impurity of the human body.
The interior front wall bears a mural depicting episodes from the Sama Jataka.
An interesting portrait features a tiger consuming a monk, which is believed to present an episode from Sumangalavilasini, a commentary on Sutta Pitaka. It relates that while a group of monks were meditating in a forest, a hungry tiger attacked them one after another. A monk was devoured gradually from toe to heart but he was able to suppress the pain by focusing on Vipassana (a meditation technique). He finally attained the state of an Arhat (saint) before he drew his last breath.
The interior window panels feature paintings of Chinese ritual altars, a popular design in the reign of King Rama III.
