Wat Pho วัดโพธิ์ has the longest reclining Buddha and you will need to pay 50baht entrance fee (to help in temple maintenance).
The feet of the Reclining Buddha.
The back view. Some people buy a bag of coins and place in the almsbowl which are lined up at the back.
The outside scene of the Wat.
Guardian Deities guarding the gates and entrance.
Beautifully carved stupas.
Above: Wat Pho International Massage school- very well known for its good massage. 30 min massage cost less than 300baht and reflexology cost about 320baht for 45 min. It’s safe and the staff have very good manners. Please arrive way before 5pm because the massage school will close at 6pm and you will be sorry that your tired feet did not get enough massage …. 🙂
In the evening, the temple grounds become a buzz with the local kids playing various games. Of course, like all temples, they close around 6pm so don’t come too late.
