Lonely Planet review

Next to Wat Phra Si Sanphet is this sanctuary hall, which houses one of the largest bronze Buddha images in Thailand. This 17m-high figure has undergone several facelifts due to lightning strikes and fire.

In 1955 the then Burmese Prime Minister donated 200,000B to restore the building, an act of belated atonement for his country's sacking of the city 200 years before.
