Wat Panan Choeng  (วัดพนัญเชิง)

Wat Panan Choeng is an old monastery housing Thailand's
largest ancient Buddha image, known as "Luang Po To".
A historical cronicle states that this gilded stucco image was
built in A.D.1344, some 26 years before the establishment
of Ayutthaya as the capital of the Thai Kingdom in A.D.1350.
