Elaborate Wat Pho


The temple’s 16 gates are guarded by Chinese giants carved from rock.  Inside, it’s colourful and filled with endless chambers, cloisters and courtyards, reminiscent of an elaborate maze.  Less kind observers might describe the complex as garish, even ostentatious, but whatever your take on Bangkok’s famous temple, nothing quite prepares you for the magnitude of the Reclining Buddha, the more than 1000 other Buddha images and the temple’s official name – Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan !!
