Paramanuchitchinorot (Thai: ปรมานุชิตชิโนรส, RTGSParamanuchitchinorot or Poramanuchitchinorot; also spelt Paramanujita Jinorasa, Paramanujit Jinoros, etc; 1790 – 9 December 1853) was a child of King Rama I and Lady Chui (จุ้ย). His given name is Prince Vasukri (วาสุกรี). He was a Buddhist writer. One of his well-known epic poems is Lilit Taleng Phai.[1] He was Supreme Patriarch of Thailand from 1851 until his death.

Paramanuchitchinorot became a novice monk when he was 12 years old. After he was ordained as a monk, he resided in Wat Pho. Two years later he became the abbot. His former residence at Wat Pho, Tamnak Wasukri, also called the poet's house, is open once a year on his birthday.[2]
