“The Phra Buddha Chinnarat is in Wat Phra Sri Rattana Temple (Wat Yai) and the 2 TA entries should be merged”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

The Phra Buddha Chinnarat is a revered Buddha statue which is actually in Wat Phra Sri Rattana Mahatat Woramahawihan, aka Wat Yai, and the two Trip Adviser entries really need to be merged as they refer to exactly the same place. See my submission under Wat Phra Sri Rattana Temple (Wat Yai) for my review of this attraction.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

This is perhaps the most beautiful Buddha image in all of Thailand, and even for a non-buddhist it is a humbling experience to visit. Wat Yai can be combined with visits to ancient Sukhothai and many of the national parks in mountainous areas of Thailand to the east. Well worth the visit.
