Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Rajwaramahawihan is more commonly known as Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.
Wat Pho is located in central Bangkok and is thought to be built in or about 1688. It is one of the largest temple complexes in Bangkok at 80,000 square meters (861,000 square feet) and has over 1,000 Buddha images as well as one of the largest Golden Reclining Buddhas in the world at 46 meters (151 ft) in length. The soles of the feet of the Buddha are 3 meters (9.8 feet) high and 4.5 meters (14.7 feet) long, and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. They are each divided into 108 panels with the center of each foot containing a circle representing a chakra or ‘energy point’. There are other buildings housing beautiful relics and some amazing garden areas to see. Wat Pho is also an education center that focuses on traditional medicine and massage therapy. It is definitely an amazing place to visit and it has easy access from the MRT. Be sure to bring water.
