- This temple holds the famous Luangpor Toh - the Buddha image standing on a lotus-petal base, with an alms bowl in his hands, blessing all beings. The statue stands 32 meters in height and 11 meters in width. The striking gold-colored image was built in 1867, during the reign of King Rama IV of the Chakri Dynasty of Bangkok. Other attractions in Wat Intrarawihan, the commoner's temple, include a meditation building, the Hall of Buddha images, the Hall of the 12-year cycle guardian angel, and the Ubosatha Hall, which houses a museum of ancient Buddha images, antiques and porcelain.
