The statue has a lap width of 9.9
meters and a height of 11.5 meters, and was at the time of its construction
claimed to be the largest in the world, but similar large statues of this famous
historical monk from southern Thailand have later been erected in other places
sometimes seated on a
and many with much larger dimensions (fig.).
This one sits on a 3-storey base, 70 meters wide and 70 meters long, which
doubles as a large hall for worshiping.
