Photographer's Note

This large statue is amongst several which are located just outside the Wat Phra Yai complex. She is a mystery to me as I have not been able to discover who she is or why she stands semi-naked with an outstretch arm. Perhaps one of our Thai friends could give me some information about her.

Big Buddha Temple or Wat Phra Yai is located on the northern coast of Koh Samui on the small island name "Koh Faan", the temple is a popular shrine and meditation center. The bazaar within the temple grounds offers souvenirs - everything from T-shirts and hats to protective amulets.
Originally, Koh Faan was surrounded by the sea water and a natural causeway joined it to the main island. At low-tide, people walked to the temple but at hide-tide they took a boat. Nowadays there is a road to the temple and visitors as well as locals seem to flock there especially at sunset.
