Attraction Details :

Buddhamonthon is an important religious venue situated in Tambon Salaya which occupies 2,500 rais (about 1,000 acres). In the B.E. 2500 or 1957, the site was built by the government and the people to commemorate the 2500th year of Buddhism with a huge upright walking Buddha image of 15.8 metres in height at the centre.

     King Bhumibhol Adulyadej granted the name “Phra Sri Sakkaya Thosapol Yan Phratan Buddhamonthon Sutas” to the splendid Buddha image.  In all four directions of the Buddha’s image, there stand four landmarks, representing Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, the first sermon, and Nirvana (demise).

 

     Other interesting places include a Buddhamonthon vihara, a patriarch temporary residence, a guest-monk residence, a religious ceremonies hall, meditation halls, a Buddhism museum, and ornamental flower gardens. At present, important Buddhist ceremonies and festivities such as the Visaka Bucha Day, Makabucha Day, Asanhabucha Day, and Loy Krathong Festival among others are held here.
