Looming behind the Giant Swing, Wat Suthat houses the awe-inducing, eight-meter Phra Sri Sakyamuni Buddha. (One of the largest surviving Sukhothai-era bronzes, this statue contains the ashes of King Rama VIII at its base.) Begun by Rama I in 1807, the temple took three reigns to complete. Rama II himself started the carving of its original teak doors (now in the National Museum).
