Never seen anything like this before, it was huge. You can see the detail on the giant feet at the bottom. Got in for free because it was a holy day.

It's a Thai historic landmark since this huge statue is make of solid gold and it'll only cost you about 15 minutes as there isn't all that much else to see. Worth the time to visit. Long live the King

I could not have imagined the beauty of the Phra Phuttha Maha Suwan Patimakon. Amazing history of the rediscovery. Long live King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

This site just has a hugely erect buddha statue and nothing more. Since I had a day and needed to spent time I visited this place. One can skip it, if one does not have time.
