Builders work on 200ft high pure copper Buddha statue in Bangkok

7 November 2019

Builders work on a giant Buddha statue that stretches 200ft (69 metres) high and is 131ft (40 metres) wide.

The pure copper deity is at the Wat Pak Nam temple in the Phasi Charoen district of Bangkok, Thailand.

On Sunday the temple will host a 'Thod Kathin' robe offering ceremony, in which followers give new orange shawls to the monks.

Work on the statue, which is the largest in Bangkok, is expected to be finished before the end of the year.

Wow, what a magnificent Buddha statues, 20 feet is equivalent to 20 floors, that is very tall! This statue will definitely become one of the attractions in Bangkok. The bigger the statue is, the more merits we can generate. A big statue like this, can benefit many beings. It can be seen from far. It will plant a Dharma seed in people's mind. May this project complete very soon!
