Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)

Wat Pho

Wat Pho is where you can find the huge golden reclining Buddha statue (lying down, on his side) and a famous massage school.

The Reclining Buddha is lying down, and measures 46 meters in length (and 15 meters high).

This area is famous for offering traditional Thai massages here (30 minutes for 260 Baht), however you should book as soon as you enter Wat Pho because it gets busy.

The whole temple area is huge, and it will take you quite a while to explore this area.

Traditional or polite dress is required, while shorts above the knees are prohibited for woman. It is required to take off your shoes and put them on the shelf before entering religious buildings. Women are also prohibited from all areas set aside for monks to perform their rites.
