Wat Pho

Bangkok’s oldest and largest temple, Wat Pho has the country’s longest Reclining Buddha. Built in the 16th century and reconstructed by Rama I (r.1782–1809), it is a typical Thai temple, with resident monks, a school, massage pavilions, and a generally lived-in feel. Around the grounds are statues and chedi (stupas) glittering with mosaics.prac_infoSoi Chetuphon • 02 226 0335 • AC bus 503, 508, 512 • Open 8am–6pm daily • Adm B100 • www.watpho.com
