Wat Phikun Thong
One can see this huge Buddha statue of Wat Phikun Thong, or Wat Luang Pho Phae, from far away. It is said to be the largest sitting Buddha image in Thailand, measuring 42 meters high and 23 meters wide. The temple is a very pretty area with a small lake, meditation gardens and neatly arranged buildings around the main image. Another building houses another huge statue of Luang Pho Phae, the former abbot of the temple.
