Phra Buddha Sihing ~ The Phra Phuttha Sihing Hall Of Nakhon Si Thammarat - Thailand.

This site Hall is between the City Hall and Provincial Courthouse of Nakhon Si Thammarat. This area used to be the residence of the provincial governor and the hall was built for the sacred 'Phra Phuttha Sihing', which is a Phra Buddha image of Great Significance. The present building was built in the period of King Vajiravudh (1910-1925).
