Additional Information


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.
