What people are saying:

Located next to the Grand Palace, also known as the Bodhi Temple, Wat Pho is the oldest temple in Bangkok and the largest temple in Thailand. There is a big Buddha lying on the altar in the temple. It is the largest reclining Buddha in Bangkok, and it occupies almost the entire space of the Daxiong Hall. The reclining Buddha is cast iron, covered with gold and inlaid with precious stones. The soles are decorated with 108 auspicious patterns inlaid with pearl shells, which are very delicate.

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.
