"Home of thousand Buddha statues" Wat Pho Tip by schurman23

Wat Pho, Bangkok: 233 reviews and 501 photos

The Wat Pho is called the Temple of the Reclining Buddha because it has the largest reclining buddha inside, but, the temple ground is surrounded by several hundreds or even a thousand buddha statues lined up along corridors. Going around it is just amazing. You can also see the buddhist monks wandering or praying around the area.

Address: Tha Tien Pier, Chao Phraya River, Bangkok
Directions: The entrance to Wat Pho is on Chetuphon road. Entrance is 20B. It's open every day, opening hours are from 08.00am to 5.00pm, with a break from 12.00pm to 1.00pm.
