Phra Buddha Chinnarat

Considered one of the most beautiful images of Buddha, this statue was cast during the late Sukhothai period in 1631.

Reviewed By Neerajkim - Bangkok, Thailand

I visited here every time I went to Phitsanulok. This Buddha is so fine and beautiful with a unique design. Outside, you can see the art of architecture that was as old as the Ayutthaya period. Visit on weekday to prevent crowded tourist.

2. Phra Si Ratana Temple (Wat Yai)

Phra Si Ratana Temple (Wat Yai)

Built in 1357 and later developed into a monastery, this temple now houses Phitsanulok’s most revered statues of Lord Buddha.

Reviewed By johnyhasita - Ko Kret, Thailand

I have a great opportunity to visit Wat Phra Sri Rattana Mahathat (Wat Yai) on the latest MAKHA BUCHA day. This is the place where the traditional, religion and love are inside of the Buddhist mind. Phra Buddha Chinnarat inside this temple is the most beautiful Buddha Statue that I have ever seen. When you go inside and look at the Buddha you will be unaware or know your time is never-ending. Your trouble will fly away once you step in and just take a look at what is in front of your face. At the back of this temple, you will find Phra Attharot is standing for many many years. This is the antiquity of Sukhothat Art Buddha. The one who believes and would like to beg or prey, he or she will prey with Thai dessert called " Bao Loi " to fulfill his or her wish.

Sgt. Maj. Thawee Folk Museum

The Museum was founded by Sgt Maj Thawee, it comprises three buidings of fascinating memorobilia collected by the Sgt Major Thawee. Opposite the Museum is a foundary where they make Bronze Buddha Images. The entry fee for the museum is fifty baht for everyone and to inspect the factory there is no charge. The Sgt Major has made several Buddha Images and other statues around Phitsanulok. The City also houses a famous Buddha Image in Wat Yai and a fabulous coffee shop called "Coffee and More".

Nice private museum owned by sergeant Tawee who is passionately in love with Thai cultural and local wisdom. His amazing collections in old wooden buildings included many antique stuffs (like banknotes, lottery tickets, toys, ancient celadon wares, ect), gadgets that were commonly used in Thai old days (but totally disappear today), also provided some informations and presentations about indigenous knowledge (like Thai herbs, etc), local arts, local old house, tribes with their livings, old Thai fashion, old photos and some significant events in the past. There is also a little souvenir shop in the museum. Ticket costs 50 baht for both Thai and foreigner (yes, not bias). If you are in Phitsanulok and interest in local culture, this museum is "a must". Thanks sergeant Tawee. visited on 28 july 2020
