Presentation Phutthakhaya Chedi

Thai name : เจดีย์ทอง
My opinion:
You will also find the name Chedi Buddhakaya to designate this golden chedi covered with several kilos of gold built in the style of Bodhgaya Mahabodhi in India which marks the place of the Buddha's enlightenment. At the entrance, there are two large Singha statues surrounding a staircase going up on the platform where the chedi stands. Putthakaya Chedi was built in 1982, much of the construction is cement and the golden hue is made ​​from a gold painting. Several vendors sell souvenirs and drinks at the parking lot in front ot the temple.
This temple is linked to the monk Luang Phaw Uttama who lived there and is highly respected by the Mon community.
