Wat Thep Phitak Punnaram

This giant white marble Buddha of the temple Wat Thep Phitak Punnaram in Muak Lek, Amphoe Pakchong, Changwat Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, can be seen from miles.

 

It can be found on route 2220 off Highway 2 on the Bangkok - Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) road.

 

I originally posted an image of this Buddha in October last year, but this version was shot in the late morning two months ago following an early start on a great day out with DanielKHC, Philippe C. and Maxsimus.

 

I've the best of intentions to climb the several hundred stairs and actually get to the base of the Buddha, for I'm sure the view from there must be fantastic. So far my intentions haven't materialised into action!
