Wat Pho Part 2 - The Reclining Buddha

Linh and I found the largest feature of Wat Pho to literally be the Reclining Buddha. Not surprising really, since Wat Pho is also known as The Temple of the Reclining Buddha.

This Buddha image was forty six metres long and fifteen metres high and decorated with gold plating on the body and mother of pearl on the eyes and soles of the feet.

There were loads of these bowls lining the wall behind the Reclining Buddha, with most containing coin donations. This woman below had the job of collecting them all.
