Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Phra Yai
Baedeker's Thailand guide writes "Pattaya itself has two more recent temple sites located to the south of the town on the summits of two hills.....the other contains a huge statue of Buddha; neither is particularly attractive". Well, my Baedeker friends, look again. Not only is the "big Buddha" here attractive, but it is also culturally wrong to even consider a Buddha statue as not attractive.
