Buddha image in Phra Pathom Chedi

Buddha image in Phra Pathom Chedi
In Thai Buddhism, it is considered a great merit to restore any articles or images that serve to remind one of the Buddha and his teachings. Thus it is often recorded how the Thais - members of the Sangha and lay people - have dutifully restored Buddha rupas.
This standing Buddha is an excellent example: in 1909 Crown Prince Vajiravudh (later Rama VI) discovered it damaged and buried in the ground. He had it dug up, inspected it, and found it had some parts in good condition; since he liked its character, he ordered its restoration and awarded it the title 'Phra Ruang Rojanaridhi Sri Indaratitaya Dharmobas Maha Vajiravudha Rajapujaniya Borpitra'. It was installed at its present location in 1915; and, in accordance with his wishes, King Vajravudh's ashes were installed there after he passed on.
