Loved visiting the reclining Buddha after seeing pictures for so many years. The temple grounds are fascinating and there is more to see than just the reclining Buddha. Definitely worth seeing when you're in Bangkok!

Wat Pho (aka the Temple of The Reclining Buddha) is one of the six temples classed as first-class royal temples in Thailand. It is associate with the king Rama I, who supposedly had it built on the site of an earlier temple. The temple has a huge collection of Buddha images and the gilded statue of the Reclining Buddha is 46 meters long and 15 meters high. It is an interesting and important temple, well worth your time.

Several interesting things to see. Probably could’ve spent more time there, but was too hot after a long day. Dress conservatively

Amazing religios place. It's now more a tourist attraction, but also many people come to pray. The huge lying Buddha is definitely worth a visit. But it also shows the Temple world of a fascinating culture. I enjoyed the visit, but it is very hot during day time and not much shadow to protect you.

What a beautiful attraction. It is always so difficult to imagine the effort and attention to details creating these monuments must be.

The sleeping Buddha here is really huge. Not to be missed while in Bangkok. Really worth visiting. Nice and really well maintained Wat.
