Wat Khao Kong

Buddhist Temple in Narathiwat

The tallest seated-Buddha image in southern Thailand is at Wat Khao Kong, 6km southwest of town on the way to the train station in Tanyongmat. Located in a park, the image is 17m long and 24m high, and made of reinforced concrete covered with tiny gold-coloured mosaic tiles that glint magically in the sun.
