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. Because it was not overly large to steal, 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.
The Image of the Luang Por Sotorn Buddha is one of the five most Sacred Buddha Images of Thailand and seen as one of the 'Pra Koo Baan Koo Mueang' (Nationally Favored and Connected to Culture) Buddha Images, and one of the most Highly Collected and Officially recognized amulets in Thai History.

The casting and empowerment of the Luang Por Sotorn Amulets was made according to the Traditional Method that has been practiced throughout all Generations of Pra Luang Por Sothorn Amulets and Buddha Images. The Chanuan Muan Sarn used for the Casting of the amulets was made from a grand selection of Sacred Alchemical metals, blessed by a Host of Guru Masters.
The Pra Luang Por Sotorn Buddha is, like the Buddha Chinarat, attributed to many lifesaving miracles which have happened over the years in the past and present, and considered to be a very powerful amulet for protection of oneself and one's household, and especially good for protection when traveling (Klaew Klaad), to evade all deadly dangers.
