Wat Pho, known as the Temple of Reclining Buddha is located behind the spectacular Temple of Emerald Buddha. Wat Pho is regarded as the largest temple in Bangkok tourist attractions.
The temple is very famous for its huge and marvelous statue of Buddha reclined on a gold leaf. Viewing this statue is nothing short of a surreal experience. Wat Pho is said to have the highest number of statues of Buddha than any other temple in Bangkok.
The reclining Buddha of Wat PHO has become something of a cultural symbol for Thailand and certainly should not be missed.

Wat Pho Reclining Buddha Reviews & Ratings
This temple was huge!. There was so many beautiful things to look at. I spent around two hours but could have easily spent another hour. The reclining Buddha was awesome. It was housed in a beautiful temple with artwork covering the entire inside of the building. Women are required to cover their ankles and shoulders but they have scarves they borrow out if you do not have anything. It is definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful temple. You need to be appropriately clothed to enter (more for ladies: shoulders covered and covered to below the knees), they do offer some scarves to cover yourself up. Ticket included a bottle of water which was great. We paid to have a tour guide take us round so we really got to experience and understand the history of the temple. That is optional, though they can be a bit pushy! Lovely couple of hours walking around. Nice souvenir shop and fairly clean toilets.
This is a huge temple park of Buddha.The paintings and architecture of the buildings are amazing.There is a large number of Buddha statues. A giant statue of Buddha is also there. You can enter in the temple and participate in prayers. The premises is full of different shapes and sizes of buildings. The temple premises are beautiful . Drinking water is available there. Transportation is easily available.
One of the most visited place in Bangkok. It is said that more than 200+ Buddha statue are here. But two main Buddha are Standing Buddha and Sleeping Buddha. These two are about 100 years old. You can see chines sculpture art in the form of buddha status and guard status. For photographer its a good place to have pictures 😁
Photos can never do justice to the feelings you'll experience when you see the gigantic reclining Buddha in person. Have seen plenty of images online of this statue, but nothing comes close to the experience. Also, pay heed to the walls of the temple where the Buddha is housed. Every inch is covered with intricate paintings. It's breathtaking. Give this place a good two hours to walk around and enjoy the serene structures, statues and carvings. It's a beautifully maintained temple. However, we luckily went on a Monday and managed to see relatively lesser crowds here. Have heard weekends can be very difficult with crowds everywhere.
