Attraction Details :
This well-known Buddha image is housed in Dan Phra Bat Temple. The Buddhist sanctuary stands amidst a lush forest, with the statue depicted in subduing Mara (demons) and decorated with golden mosaics. The 20-meter-tall image was created in the northern Indian style in 1965, and is considered the most sacred image in the entire province.
The temple also holds a respected Buddha statue called Pa La Hai, coincidentally discovered in the pond in 1962 when the temple was under renovation. It is believed that this Buddha image brings good fortune to worshippers.
The temple is situated 3 kilometers from Amnat Charoen town on the left-hand side of Highway No. 212.
