Yasothon Province, Church of the Archangel Michael, Ban Song Yae Catholic Church , Phra Phutthabat Yasothon

Phra Phutthabat Yasothon is situated in Wat Phra Phutthabat Yasothon in Maha Chana Chai in the Yasothon province.


The hall enshrines the Lord Buddha\'s Footprint in the form of a white sand dune at the fertile area of the Chi River, and sandstone Buddha image.


It is written that the image was brought from Ayutthaya in the year 835. The tradition of worshiping the Buddha imprint had long been practiced in the ancient time since there was no Buddha statue.


A story is told that the Buddha marked five of his foot prints especially up on the mountain and river bank.


When people imitate the imprint for worshipping in many other places, they usually locate them around a river or on a hill.
