About Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in Phitsanulok
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat is the most important temple in Phitsanulok and the town’s major tourist attraction. Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat was founded in 1357 by the King of the Sukhothai Empire. At the same time as he founded the temple the King also commissioned the casting of three bronze statues to be enshrined at the temple. Only one of these three statues, known as the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat, is on display at Wat Phra Si Rattana. The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat is considered by many Thai Buddhists to be the most beautiful Buddha statue in Thailand and the shrine hall where the statue is located receives a constant stream of mostly Thai visitors. The statue is 3.75 metres tall has and features a distinctive aureole around the body of the Lord Buddha shaped like flames.
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat also features a large standing Buddha, also created when the temple was founded, and a 36 metre high prang, which is a Khmer style tower in which Buddha relics are believed to be enshrined.
