The Famous Reclining Buddha of Wat Pho

One of the largest wats in Bangkok and home to over 1,000 images of the Buddha, Wat Pho is most famous for this sculpture of a giant reclining Buddha. He's 46 meters long with feet inscribed with mother-of-pearl mosaics and a body covered in gold leaf. Very impressive. Wat Pho isn't a pilgrimage site, but you can drop some money in one of 108 begging bowls and maybe bring yourself some good luck.
