This Bangkok temple is much less known and often forgotten by guide books. It hosts the only large standing Buddha in the Thai capital city. The statue leaning against a cement tower is 32 meters high and 10 meters wide. Called Luang Pho or Phra Si Ariyamettrai, it is decorated with glass and 24K gold mosaics. It contains a Buddha relic coming from Sri Lanka.
Behind the big Buddha, there is a small cemetery with burial urns and boxes and in front of the Buddha Image, there is a plaza surrounded by a covered walkway. But the interest of Intharawihan is definitly its large statue.
The temple was called Wat Rai Phrik originally and dates from the early Ayutthaya period.
