Wat Pho



The oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, located at the south side of the Grand Palace and is protected by massive walls through which only two of the 16 gates are open to the public. The first temple was built in the 16th century. The 8 hectare complex was added to by successive kings.

Historically the site was a type of university for public education and hence today we see an array of miscellaneous buildings, murals and inscriptions dealing with astrology, military defence, literature, morality, archaeology and traditional medicine. The temple compound is large and contains numerous pavilions, statues, buildings, 91 Chedi and enclosed gardens.  Whilst the Temple of the Reclining Buddha inside the complex is a tourist favorite the larger temple to the east wall is more impressive.
