The Biggest Resonant Bell

In 2004 (B.E. 2547), the biggest resonant bell of Thailand was installed according to the Mahayana Buddhism system of faith. In all temples, these kinds of bells are rung to assemble the Sangha for prayers and practices and the sound even invokes the gods and nature to bring peace and happiness in the area. As the ringing of the bell is heard, which is normally rung while chanting a prayer, it is taught by the Buddha, that even the hell beings will be relieved from the sufferings for a while. The larger the bell is, more powerful it becomes! In building this enormous bell, it was the present Abbot who had to travel up to Vietnam. The bell is 3.80 meters high, with a diameter of 1.80 meters. It weighs 5.5 tons. It is hung on the ceiling of the Floor VIII of the Nine-tier Peace Pagoda. The bell’s sound could be heard within the radius of a kilometer from the temple.
