Wat Buraphaphiram
Wat Burapha Phirom is the most famous temple in Roi Et because it houses Phra Maha Muni Phuttha Ratana Mongkhon (or Luang Pho Yai), the highest standing Buddha statue in Thailand. It is 59 meters and 20 centimeters high from head to toe and is visible from afar. The statue is quite simple and built on a small building in which you can enter and discover a beautiful small sanctuary where you can buy miniature reproductions of the Buddha. There is a small staircase at the back of the statue which sometimes open to the public and a small wihaan at its right.
Opposite to the Big Buddha, there is a small monument under the trees housing a relining Buddha and behind it, a small park with statues representing several moments in the life of Lord Buddha.
