Luang Pu Thuat (2125-2225 BE) was a Buddhist monk, born in Dee Luang sub-district, Sathing Phra district, Songkhla, Thailand.
He is a revered Buddhist monk who lived in Siam and is said to have performed miracles.
Luang Pu Thuat is mentioned in the early regional histories of southern Thailand, but his life is mainly preserved in oral traditions. Stories of the famous monk were passed on by word of mouth for centuries. As a result, it is a mixture of Buddhist elements: early signs, alleged magic, travel, study, meditation, and eventual “sainthood.”
His movements throughout the southern Thai peninsula constitute a path of pilgrimage for many of his followers.
Luang Pu Thuat has also been said to have saved countless lives of people be it on the battlefield, armed robbery, or more with his sacred amulets.
Its statue in this Dhama Park Anachak Luang Pu Thuat - Pak Chong district is 69 meters high and 39.99 meters wide. It is the largest statue of this revered monk in Thailand.
The white elephant statue on the alley leading the the main statue symbolize power, strength and brave.
Many other statues as spread in a nice garden.
