“This is the main statue of the Buddha at Wat Yai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

As noted in other reviews, this is the main statue of the Buddha at Wat Yai.

If you visit the temple - you may be visiting mainly to see this statue. However, it's worth also visiting the rest of the temple.

“One of the most famous temples in Thailand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

This is one of the most famous temples in Thailand that most of the locals make a pilgrimage. Weekends are quite busy, with mostly local tourists. This is the place to visit if you want to see the locals pay their respects to Buddha with none of the tourist trappings.

“The Phra Buddha Chinnarat is in Wat Phra Sri Rattana Temple (Wat Yai) and the 2 TA entries should be merged”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
