"Reclining Buddha immage (2)" Wat Pho Tip by SumTingWong

Wat Pho, Bangkok: 234 reviews and 502 photos

  Placing the coins in the jugs
by SumTingWong

When you visit the Reclining Buddha there is a Thai custom to place 112 coins in the lucky 112 jugs. This will cost you 20 Baht and all the money is donated to good causes (I know, and hope). You will see black pots to place the coins in, one coin per pot/jug. It's just a fun and interesting local custom at Wat Pho (where the Reclining Buddha immage is).
