The most striking feature at Wat Lokayasutharam in Ayutthaya is the giant reclining Buddha known as Phra Buddhasaiyart. At 37 meters long and 8 meters high.

The head is resting on a lotus and at the opposite end of the body, the legs and feet overlap squarely. The area at ground level beneath the head is covered in tiny squares of gold-leaf which have been paced there by people making merit. Flowers and incense are also presented as offerings. Phra Buddhasaiyart has been restored on a number of occasions in modern times. Most recently, the flooding of late 2011 caused some cosmetic damage which the Department of Fine Arts has now repaired.
