Temple of the Reclining Buddha

Wat Pho (วัดโพธิ์) is situated behind the Grand Palace, near the Tha Tien Pier in Bangkok. It is a large temple that was built during the Ayutthaya Period. King Rama I ordered its complete restoration in 1789 and installed many Buddha images that were removed from abandoned temples in other parts of the country. King Rama III ordered another major renovation of the temple to make it a center of learning and art. The temple is famous for the 46 meter long Reclining Buddha.
