This is an important religious site. It is situated in Tambon Salaya and occupies an area of 2,500 Rais (about 1,000 acres). In the B.E 2500 or 1957, the site was built by the government and the people to commemorate the 2500th year of Buddhism.  
 
A huge upright Buddha image, in walking attitude, measuring about 15.8 metres marks the centre of the area. King Bhumibhol Adulyadej granted the name “Phra Sri Sakkaya Thosapol Yan Phratan Buddhamonthon Sutas” to the splendid Buddha image.  
 
In all 4 directions of the Buddha’s image, there stands 4 landmarks, representing Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, the first sermon, and Nirvana (demise). Other interesting places include a Buddhamonthon vihara, a patriarch temporary residence, a guest-monk residence, a religious ceremonies hall, meditation halls, a Buddhism museum, and ornamental flower gardens.  
 
At present, important Buddhist ceremonies and festivities are held here, such as the Visaka Bucha Day, Makabucha Day, Asanhabucha Day, and Loy Krathong Festival among others. For group visitors, please contact the Public Relations Section, Buddhamonthon, tel: 441-9012-3.
