This temple is situated on the west bank of the Bang Pakong River, 2 Kms. south of the city hall. Enshrined in a new gigantic hall is Phra Phutthasothon, or "Luang Pho Sothon" regarded as one of the most revered Buddha images in Thailand. The image, in the attitude of meditation, measuring 1.65 metres wide at the lap and 1.98 metres high, is always seen entirely pasted with gold leaves by worshipers. Two annual fairs celebrating the image fall in the 5th and the 12th lunar months (around April and November).
Wat Bang Phli Yai Klang is in Bang Phli district in Samut Prakan. It houses the longest Reclining Buddha in Thailand at 53 metres long. In comparison, the famous Recling Buddha at Wat Pho in Bangkok is only 46 metres long. In addition, this Buddha image is unusual in that you can actually go inside. On the third floor there are paintings on the walls depicting moments from the Buddha's life as well as scenes depicting a Buddhist hell. A rather special shrine inside is for the Buddha's heart.
The Buddha's Footprint is found at Wat Phra Buddhabat in Saraburi Province, 20 kms. from the town of Lop Buri on the Saraburi - Lopburi route. It is a very important shrine for Buddhist people, for the Footprint appears on a natural rock surface while the Buddha's footprints commonly found in many temples are imitations executed in various materials ranging from wood to metal. Wat Phra Buddhabat is a royal temple of the first class rank, the same as Wat Phra Pathom Chedi in Nakhon Pathom province.
