Thanks for following me this far. We are more than half way through my series; Thailand – Bangkok; Ride down River Chao Phraya.
One of the buildings close to the Grand Palace. Not sure what building is this. Anyone knows?
Anyway.. let head inside of Wat Pho. It is a Buddhist temple in Phra Nakhon district, Bangkok, Thailand. Located in the Rattanakosin district directly adjacent to the Grand Palace. It is also known also as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, where it’s official name is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan. I also got to know that the temple is the birthplace for traditional Thai Massage. =O
View from outside the perimeter of the temple. Lots of vendor stalls outside the temple selling souvenirs.
Wat Pho is one of the largest and oldest Wat temples in Bangkok; 80,000 square meters and is home to more than one thousand Buddha images, as well as one of the largest single Buddha images of 160 ft length Reclining Buddha.
Some shots taken inside the Wat; Chedis from far.
Lovely architecture; close up of the chedis
More? Sure. Just stay tune for the next posting. Remember… we are just only slightly half way through this series only. =)
