    The Reclyning Bhudda

    by Joenes Updated Jan 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very huge lying Bhudda at the Wat Po which was the first university in Bangkok.
    On the feet of this giant you will find lessons for the scholars a long time ago.

    Very cool, well worth the visit, just get in line and remove your shoes. People are taking lots of pictures so the line can move slow.

    When you see the smile on her face, you can instantly understand why people in Thailand are extremely friendly and peaceful.

    Wat Po

    Wat Po is right next door to the Grand Palace. The highlight is the giant reclining Buddha, but all of the grounds are nice to see.

    Standing before this complex of temples - above the white wall - you will immediately recognise this famous Golden Chedi of Bangkok.
    Phra Sri Ratana Chedi was builded in 1885
    during the Rama V period
