The Thais always try to make a pilgrim to visit this temple as it is ancient and regard as most sacred temple in the North. You get the sense of calm and spiritual and want to let go.. You will want to be a Buddhist !

This is one of the most impressive Buddha representations in all of Thailand. Reproduced by many, this is the original! The temple it is housed in is beautiful and one that tour buses bring thousands to enjoy. The grounds are massive with many things to see and appreciate.

There is a lovely Thai girl who volunteers to show foreigners around the wat and practice her English. She's a very good guide! Go after school finishes at 3.30 to catch her. And don't worry, she's there with her parents!

This is one of the most stunning Buddha statues in all of Thailand. In fact, it is the most reproduced Buddha image in Thailand (amulets, pictures, etc.). Phra Chinnarat and the Wat Yai temple is a must-see if you go to Phitsanulok. Adjacent to the Chinnarat statue is a tribute to Somdet Prah Naresuan -- one of the kings from... More

One of the most beloved Buddha for Thai people from everywhere in the country. As you know, Thai people are basically attached to the Buddha from their area, but here, they are people coming from North, South or Other places in Thailand. The ambiance is so nice, and you can "touch" the fervour from people coming to pray.

This is a nice one to see. And it's free. Don't forget to take your shoes off. And woman needs to wear a dress below the knee and wear sleeves to show respect.
