Can someone please remind me of the name of the Wat with the large Buddha outside (the second picture)?

Today being Vesak, I am constrained by work, and am not able to attend the celebrations at my local temple.
Viewing these Photographs again, I can almost transport myself there, and sit in quiet contemplation on the cool floor, and reside in meditative bliss.... Just for a moment or two.... ;)

If I close my eyes, I'd swear I can listen to the Bikkhus chanting.....
