Wat Sri Chum

Fodor's Review

Like many other sanctuaries, Wat Si Chum was originally surrounded by a moat. The main structure is dominated by a statue of the Buddha in a seated position. The huge but elegant stucco image is one of the largest in Thailand, measuring 11¼ meters (37 feet) from knee to knee. Enter the mondop, a ceremonial structure, through the passage inside the left inner wall. Keep your eyes on the ceiling: more than 50 engraved slabs illustrate scenes from the Jataka, which are stories about the previous lives of Lord Buddha.
