Wat Muang, Ang Thong Province (92m tall)
The towering Phra Buddha Maha Nawamin of Wat Muang is the ninth-tallest statue in the world and is deservedly known as the “Great Buddha of Thailand”. Located around 140 km north of Bangkok, in Ang Thong Province, the gold-painted statue took 18 years to build and was completed in 2008. Being sat in the Bhumisparsha mudra pose, its knees span a staggering 63m. The nearby “Hell Park” is also worth a visit, with its gruesome (and much smaller) statues depicting the fate of sinners.
