Phuttha Monthon: Run By the World’s Tallest Buddha Statue!

This is a large Buddhist park in the Phutthamonthon District, 30 km west of Bangkok. It is highlighted by a 15.87 m (52 ft) high Buddha statue by Corrado Feroci, which may be the tallest free-standing Buddha statue in the world. There’s also an important building containing the entire Buddhist canon engraved in 1418 marble stelas.

The park has a 2.5 km path, which is great for running. There are plenty of trees, good views, and some water around.

I am Thai runner. I often run in This place. you may be wrong about the Route which is not 2.5 km. But It is 6-12 Km within the park depend on which way you go. It is scenic route with large lake and forest atmosphere. and also rectagular running path is exactly 8 km around the park. there are food stall on the weekend, also allow fast bike ride everyday.
