Category : Temple
Attraction Details :
Wat Phayao is famed for its solid gold Buddha image which is several centuries old. It had spent the majority of its time encased in black lacquer and cement that had been added to obscure the value of the image. When a monk ordered the cement removed, the statue’s true worth was discovered.
To get there, take the Saraburi–Ban Yang Route (Highway No. 3041). Before reaching Amphoe Sao Hai, turn right onto Highway No. 3041, passing the Pa Sak River Bridge and turn left again for 100 meters. The total distance from Mueang district of Saraburi is approximately 9 kilometers. At the back of the temple is the Pak Bang-Saraburi Road.
