This temple located in Ang Thong (about forty kilometers from Ayutthaya or Lopburi), about ten kilometers from the city center, is best known for its huge golden sitting Buddha 95 meters high. It is te highest in the country (at least for the moment, all records have to be beaten one day). The curiosity here is the right hand of the Buddha that visitors can touch from a small stage and below which they look really tiny.
Besides the imposing statue that dominates Wat Muang, there are other wihaans and statues in the garden, including a large square with two ghosts and torture scenes behind them. This temple is very popular and appreciated by Thais and not often visited by foreign tourists for now. Probably because Ang Thong even if it is only a few kilometers from Ayutthaya and Lopburi is not on tour programs. But it is definitly a place amazing photos fans will enjoy.
