Buri Ram Travel Guide :

Phrachao Yai Wat Hong 

        Phrachao Yai Wat Hong is located in Phutthaisong district of Buri Ram Province. This revered Buddha image is built in Laotian style architecture and show Buddha in subduing Mara posture. It is believed that the image was built either during the late Ayutthaya period or in the 18th century.

 

        The Buddha image is 2 meters tall and has a lap width of 1.6 meters. It is made from laterite and also features the folk art of the region. This Buddha image is housed in Wat Hong, also known Wat Sisa Raet.

        The highly revered image is called Phrachao Yai in the northeastern dialect, which means the Great Sacred Power. Many locals pay homage to the image, especially when they make a wish or a vow. There is a belief that anyone who fails to fulfill his promise after the wish is granted should be prepared for some bad luck to befall on him. This bad luck can be in the form of an accident or untoward event.

        The amazing thing is that under the base of Phrachao Yai Wat Hong, amulets made from bronze and Buddha images carved from rhinoceros horns were found.

        The Phrachao Yai Wat Hong also witnesses a lot of celebrations. Each year, on the 14th day of the waxing moon or on the 1st day of the waning moon of the third lunar month, a festival is held to pay homage to the Buddha image. Many people from the district as well as from other districts come to pay their respects.
