Phitsanulok Province

Wat Yai is famous throughout Thailand for its golden sculpture of the Buddha called the Phra Buddha Chinnaraj (พระพุทธชินราช). Many Thai people consider the Phra Buddha Chinnaraj to be the most beautiful Buddha portrait in Thailand. It depicts Buddha in the posture of overcoming Mara (ปางมารวิชัย), also called Mara submission. A stone inscription indicated that he was molded over 700 years ago by a King Mahathamaracha Lithai of Sukhothai dynasty. Several faithful copies of the Phra Buddha Chinnarat are displayed in other temples, including Wat Benchamabophit in Bangkok and Wat Saranat Thammaram in Rayong. Also, the Phra Buddha Chinnaraj is depicted on the official seal of the Phitsanulok Province.
