4.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Known by the locals as Wat Yai, Phra Si Ratana Temple (Wat Yai) was built in the 14th century and is now famous for its gold Buddha sculpture, which some consider to be one of the most beautiful of its kind in Thailand. When you view the sculpture, look for its halo that signifies the spiritual radiance of Buddha. Also admire the wood-and-pearl ordination hall doors and the Ayutthaya-style pagoda. Check out the attraction's museum, too, and browse through Buddha images and artifacts from the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya eras.

  • The temple was built in the 14th century. Is considered Thailand's most beautiful Buddha images, many worshippers. But few foreign tourists, Thailand tourists or local people's most. Advance billing as the Golden Buddha is very beautiful.
