"Wat Po or Wat Chetuphon" Wat Pho Tip by lucy60

Wat Pho, Bangkok: 234 reviews and 502 photos

Guides call it the temple of reclining Budda because of an enourmous and revered statue of a reclining Budda hosted inside. This is my prefered temple in BKK. It's south of Grand Palace so you may visit both same day. It's an oasis of peace. I visited almost everytime I was in BKK. Rememberthat the viharn of Reclining Budda is sacred place where a lot of people go to pray So be respectful. The things that never do is wander inside the garden where you are mesmerize by fanrėtastic chines stone figures and animals. Don't miss the ubosot with marble panels.
It's open every day, opening hours are from 08.00am to 5.00 pm, with a break from 12.00pm to 1.00pm. Admission fee: 20 THB
