Wat Pho (วัดโพธิ์), or as generally known to the Thais, Wat Phra Chetuphon (วัดพระเชตุพน) is famous for the huge Reclining Buddha statue. It is the largest Wat in Bangkok, and is technically the oldest too, as it was built around 200 years before Bangkok became Thailand's capital.
As old as it is,the Wat today bears no resemblance to that originally constructed, as it was almost entirely rebuilt by Rama I when the capital was moved to Bangkok.
The highly impressive gold plated reclining Buddha is 46 meters long and 15 meters high, and is designed to illustrate the passing of the Buddha into nirvana. The feet and the eyes are engraved with mother-of-pearl decoration, and the feet also show the 108 auspicious characteristics of the true Buddha.
