The Luang Por Sotorn Buddha of Wat Sotorn in Bang Pakong, Thailand, was one of the Famous 5 Sacred Thai Buddhas found Miraculously floating down the river. The Buddha was invited to reside in the Temple in an Official Ceremony according to Ancient Traditions. A Monk was found who knew the method of Inviting, and the Buddha was raised up to be installed within the Temple.

Once the Buddha was installed, it was seen to be a Buddha made in the Lan Chang Era. The Monks were worried about its safety and so made a thick outer casing of cement and covered it in gold, to make the Image larger and heavier, rendering impossible to steal.
