Buddhism is stated as the religion of the country in Thailand. Thai Buddhism is completely based on the Theravada tradition, which came into existence from the influence of Buddhists monks from Sri Lanka. This religion spread from the India to Thailand long time ago – where Mahayana and Theravada have flourished from the earliest periods to the present days. Theravada sect of Buddhism teaches people that salvation can only be earned through personal efforts. This cult of Buddhism became the foremost beliefs and religious faith of Thai people. Therefore the religious beliefs of people led them for devouring their artistic flavors by constructing various types of Buddha statues, artifacts from the ancient time which is still prevalent in Thai culture. The Great Buddha of Thailand is tallest statue of Buddha in Thailand and ninth tallest in world. This statue is made from the cement which stands 92 meter high and 63 meter high.

Undoubtedly Dvaravati style represents the close relationship with the Indian art from the archetypes of Amaravati and Gupta style. These influences were adopted in the primitive art of the early powerful kingdom of Thailand called Dvaravati Kingdom. The distinctive feature of this sculpture is the Wheel of Law found in all Dvaravati Kingdom which is the symbol of Buddha first sermon erected on high pillars and temple compounds. Similarly Srivajaya and Lobpuri Buddha statues are influenced from Indian traditions and also from Dvaravati, Javanese and Khmer art. The styles of these arts were later integrated along with the local styles and formed a unique Srivajaya art. Buddhist art from Srivajaya period are mainly related to Mahayana Buddhism. Whereas Lobpuri arts influence from Khmer art and spread all over northeast of Thailand. Chiang Saen Buddha statues are round with a pleasant smile with a hooked nose narrow lips which came into existence from 10th to 13th century in Northern Thailand.

After the independence of Sukothai from Khmer King Sri Indrahit in 14th century AD, the King adopted the different form of Buddhism inspired from Sri Lankan school. The development in Sukothai Buddha statues were absolutely unique and beautiful style. On the other hand, the styles adapted in U ThongAyutthaya and Rattanokosin Buddha statues are similar to that of Sukothai. It represents the protruding hair tied into a topknot in a cone shaped. The distinctive hair frame, curved lips and eyes were the unique features survived in Rattanokosin period.
