Wat Pho ~ Bangkok

The Temple of the Reclining Buddha


The Wat Pho temple complex in
Bangkok, Thailand has the largest
reclining Buddha in Thailand.


The statue is 46 metres long.


On the soles of the feet of the

People make offerings of
beautiful arrangements of
lotus flowers which are
the flower of the Buddha.
