Very similar to the performances performed at the Four-Faced Buddha at the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok. However what strike me most was the new tall building of Sothorn Wararam Waravihan temple and which never fails to attract the attention of visitors for its remarkable beauty. It has taken more than 15 years in construction and reflects the strong faith of the local people in Buddhism. The peak is 84 metres high.
It is decorated with five golden umbrellas weighing a total of 77 kilogrammes. This is one of the Thailand's largest temples. This style amulet is extremely rare and very difficult to come by.

History Pra Buddha Sothorn or Luang Pho Sothorn is a Buddha statue greatly revered for its sacredness. In the seated meditative attitude, the gilded stucco statue of 165 centimeters from knee to knee and height of 148 centimeters displays the distinct characteristics of Lan Chang art, the art that is prevalent in the northeast of Thailand and Laos.
It is said that originally Luang Phor Sothorn was a bronze statue with all the beautiful characteristics of a Buddha image. Fearing that it would not survive a burglary, the monks in the wat masked it with stucco. No one knows how long Luang Pho Sothorn has been installed in the wat. Legend has it that three Buddha statues floated along the stream from the North to Tambon Sam Pratuan, Cha Cheong Sao precinct. Despite much effort, the people in the neighborhood could not pull them out of the stream.
Afterwards, the largest statue drifted down further to Ban Laem, Samut Songkram province. It was therefore installed at Wat Ban Laem. The smallest, floating down to Bang Plee, was housed in the ubosot of Wat Bang Plee.
Luang Pho Sothorn, the second largest, drifted to Wat Sothorn pier. After arduous attempts to retrieve Luang Phoh failed, a master was called in to perform a ceremony. Sacred threads tied around the wrist of Luang Pho Sothorn was effortlessly lifted and has been installed in the wat since then.
Formally known as Wat Hong, Wat Sothorn Wararam Worawihan is belived to have been built around the end of the Ayutthaya Period. Situated on the west bank of Bang Pakong river, the wat was completely destroyed by a flood.A new wat was then constructed, taking the name of Wat Sao Tong after the banner pole in the wat. But as the pole was blown into two pieces by strong wind, the name was changed to Wat Sao Taun The wat received a new name again when it came to house Luang Pho Sothorn. Wat Sothorn, the name at the time, means the three Buddha of the same womb. Later yet, the spelling was changed to fit the attributes of Luang Pho. Wat Sothorn, in its present spelling, means the temple of the sacred Buddha image. And also for your valuable collectible thing.
