Budha was being restored so much scafolding but an amazing structure. An enclosure has been built around to protect from elements. A worthwhile visit and many local people praying and celebrating their beliefs.

One of the longest reclining Bhudda I have seen. Very interesting the way it is well. Explained the inscription on Lord Bhudda feet.

I actually felt that the Buddha was enhanced by the bamboo scaffolding which covers the huge statue at this time. It is not as amazing as Bangkok’s gorgeous reclining Buddha, but the in depth guide to each section of Buddha’s feet is interesting. One of...More

This Buddha was worth the visit but if I did not have enough time, I would have passed on it. It is a new Buddha in a new building.
