"Wat Pho" Wat Pho Tip by Rodan44
Wat Pho, Bangkok: 234 reviews and 502 photos
Wat Pho, also called Wat Phra Chetuphon, is the largest and oldest Wat in Bangkok. The vast complex houses both the largest reclining Buddha (46 meters long and 15 meters high) and the most Buddha images (more than 1000) in Thailand. The temple architecture is some of the finest anywhere and there are several towering ceramic covered chedis (spires).
The giant gold reclining Buddha is definitely the highlight. Its feet and eyes are engraved with mother-of-pearl decoration, and it barely fits into the giant temple that houses it.
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.
