"Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram" Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram (Reclining Buddha Temple) Tip by Audrey118

  Reclining Buddha
by Audrey118

As a kid we call it Sleeping Buddha - but I think it is more correct now to say Reclining Buddha - his eyes are wide awake!!!

The Thai styled buidlings house the magnificent 32 meter gold-plated reclining Buddha - thus marking as one of the longest in the world. (the 3rd)

There are many tiny Buddhas all over inside ths shrine which contain the ashes of devotees.
The higher the location the more expensive you have to pay.
