Photographer's Note

Wat Pho also known as Wat Phra Chetuphon or The Temple of the Reclining Buddha, located in the Rattanakosin district directly adjacent to the Grand Palace. Its official full name is Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn . The temple is also known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage.

Prior to the temple's founding, the site was a centre of education for traditional Thai medicine, and statues were created showing yoga positions.


Wat Pho is the one of the largest and oldest wat in Bangkok and is home to more than one thousand Buddha images, as well as one of the largest single Buddha images: the Reclining Buddha .Wat Pho known as one of most number of Chedis in Thailand.

I got this shot in the evening of last day of Water festival as the last chance before sunset.
