Walking Buddha at Wat Chetuphon - which is famous for four Buddha Images of vast size in four different postures: sitting, reclining, standing and walking - the last of which is in the best condition and shown here. Their size is impressive and can be seen from the area. Enshrined in a mandapa with porches on four sides, these huge Buddhas also serve for supporting the mandapa roof, a functional feature developed from Burmese architecture in Pagan.
