Your trip to Bangkok’s old town will not be completed without a visit to Wat Pho or Temple of the Reclining Bhudda, built on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in the 16th century; Wat Pho is probably the most well-known temple in Bangkok.
It’s well worth having a look around the entire temple compound. Wat Pho’s chapels and stupas feature thousands more Buddha images and golden statues, in addition to many Chinese sculptures. Wat Pho is also a great place to experience a traditional Thai massage. Indeed, the temple is site of one of the country’s top schools for massage therapy and other traditional Thai healing practices.
Located on the edge of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, another famous Buddhist temple: Temple of the Reclining Buddha, it is definitely a must-see attraction in Bangkok!
It is the oldest temple in Bangkok, also known as the Bodhi Temple. Today, the ticket is 200 baht per person, but it is worth spending half a day slowly.
Walk in the temple. There are various stupas of different heights. The various pagodas of different sizes are affixed with various colorful tiles. Another highlight in the temple is a huge reclining Buddha, golden and solemn. In the various corridors outside the Reclining Buddha Temple, a variety of golden Buddha statues are also set up, which are exquisite.

Thai Buddha Temple, right next to the Grand Palace, two temples can be placed in one day and visited together. The Temple of the Reclining Buddha is the oldest temple in Bangkok and the largest temple in Thailand. The Temple of Reclining Buddha is not only the largest temple in Bangkok, but also the temple with the largest reclining Buddha and the largest pagoda. As soon as you enter the door, the towers are nestled in layers, and the color stupas are stacked one on another. There are 99 large and small pagodas in the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and 71 pagodas with a height of 7 meters. One after another in the garden, the pagoda is especially suitable for taking pictures. After visiting the pagoda, enter the two public gates and go to the main temple of the huge reclining Buddha. The reclining Buddha in the Reclining Buddha is 46 meters long. Inscriptions are engraved everywhere. The content includes architecture, history, Buddhist history, etc., which is like a textbook. The reclining Buddha is also quite ecstasy. It is really big. No one is sitting on the contrast. It doesnt make much difference. The length of the palm is 5 meters and the width is 1.5 meters. The two feet are stacked, each decorated with mother-of-pearl. 108 auspicious patterns inlaid with shells. It was already late in the evening, and I took a tactful tuk-tuk to the Khao San Road Hotel.
Thailand is a Buddhist country with the title of the country of thousands of Buddhas. In the capital city of Bangkok, there are countless temples, and the streets are often seen as monks walking. The Temple of the Reclining Buddha, built in 1793, is next to the popular Grand Palace and the Jade Buddha Temple. However, it is much quieter than the noise in the Grand Palace. The most famous reclining Buddha in the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the entire Buddha is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. The whole body is covered with gold foil and shines, occupying almost all the space of the Buddhist temple.
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.
