The Big Buddha of Wat Pho
The largest reclining Buddha in the world resides here at Wat Pho, which in itself is remarkable. Beyond that there is so much more to explore and see here within this beautiful gem of temple grounds set amongst the many temples of Bangkok. The grounds of Wat Pho are made up of several temples, within its compound beyond where the reclining Buddha resides. It is also home to more than one thousand Buddha images. The many stupas and courtyards are beautifully tiled with intricate designs that reach up to the heavens. Getting to Wat Pho was easy. I took an orange river taxi which run frequently and I got off at stop #8. The taxi cost 15 Baht, which equals about .50 cents US. The entrance fee to Wat Pho was 100 Baht or $3.35 US. From the river dock it's about a block away and easy to find. I was lucky the day I decided to visit as there were only a few tourist besides people making reverence.
