Phra Thong Temple (Wat Phra Thong)

Phra Thong Temple (Wat Phra Thong)
This temple enshrines a golden Buddha image that sprang up from beneath the earth long ago.
The story tells of a young boy who tied his buffalo to what he thought was a post. After doing so, he fell down in agony and died. The father of the boy dreamed that the reason his son had died was for the sin of tying a filthy buffalo to a sacred object, that what the boy thought was a post was in reality the golden peak of the Buddha’s conical cap. He told his
neighbors the dream and they all went out to dig up the statue but had no success.
