Luang Pho To in Bang Phli

One of the most revered Buddha images in Samut Prakan Province is Luang Poh To which can be found at Wat Bang Phli Yai Nai. During the annual Rub Bua Festival, usually in October, a replica of this image is taken out on a boat on the Samrong Canal for local people to worship. They line both sides of the canal and throw lotus flowers towards the boat. After about half an hour the Buddha image is buried in lotuses up to its neck.
