The Giant Buddha

One of the largest seated Buddha images in Thailand can be found at Wat Muang in Ang Thong Province. It is called Phra Buddha Maha Nawamin. It is 95 meters high and 63.05 wide. It took 16 years to build at an estimated cost of 104 million Baht. It is an amazing site as you can see it from miles around towering above the rice fields.

    It’s actually the largest sitting Buddha statue in the world, as far as I know. There are larger standing or reclining Buddhas.
