During our temple hopping in Bangkok. Visited Wat Pho, Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It is just a few mins walk from the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Fun fact: Did you know that the Buddha in the temple is 15 metres tall, 46 metres long.
The temple of the sleeping buddha, laced with gold.
This temple was so mystifying, everything was covered in gold or made of bronze. It was a real experience, great for photography as well.
When you see the sleeping buddha, you will be in awe. It is so big, it makes you wonder how such a thing was crafted!
A MUST GO.
The highlight for most people visiting Wat Pho is the Reclining Buddha. The figures here are impressive: 15 metres tall, 46 metres long, so large that it feels like it’s been squeezed into the building. Before entering the building please take off your shoes! #bangkok #thailand #watpho #instagramworthydestinations #tropical #wintergetaway
Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), is a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok. As one of the largest temple complexes in the city, it’s famed for its giant reclining Buddha that is 46 metres long, covered in gold leaf. Visit Thailand for great winter escape from your freezing homeland. Catch some sun! ☀️ #thailand #bangkok #sun #tropical #sunny #instagramworthydestinations #unforgettableexperiences #wintergetaway
Wat Pho, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, is a particularly ancient temple in Bangkok. The temple is located next to the south side of the Grand Palace. A stroll through the temple shows how each building is expertly crafted. The towering stupa, the red-roofed temple, and the temple with a red, green, and gold Thai-style curving roof are amazing. The temple is famous for two reasons. One is the large reclining Buddha on the altar in the temple. The iron-cast statue is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. The statue is gilded and adorned with gems, and almost occupies all of the space in the Great Hall. The other reason why the temple is famous is because you can enjoy an authentic traditional Thai massage here.
