Phra Si Rattana Mahathat Temple in Phitsanulok
Phra Si Rattana Mahathat Temple in Phitsanulok was founded in the middle of the 14th Century by the King of Sukhothai, which was one of several independent states within what is modern day Thailand. The reason this temple is famous, and the reason why it gets so many visitors, is because of the Buddha statue cast to reside in the temple which is known as the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat. The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat is often described as being the most beautiful Buddha statue in Thailand.
The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat is 375 cm tall, cast in bronze, and is unusual in that the seated image of the Lord Buddha is surrounded by an aureola shaped like flames. The shrine hall where the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue is located is also a work of art with murals, elaborate gold stencil work and European style chandeliers. The shrine hall is normally very busy at all hours with Thai Buddhists coming to the Phra Si Rattana Mahathat Temple to pray.
Phra Si Rattana Mahathat Temple is open every day from 06:30 to 18:00 and foreigners, but not Thai nationals, are charged 40 THB to access the inner part of the temple. Phra Si Rattana Mahathat Temple also has an interesting Khmer style prang tower and another large standing Buddha statue fro the 14th Century which are also worth coming to see.
