The Temple of the Reclining Buddha - (Wat Pho), is a Buddhist temple, 725 meters from the Grand Palace in Bangkok.  (Be careful to sk Taxi and Tuk TuK drivers for directions, they usually belong to a scam) The temple has the largest collection of Buddha figurines in Thailand; including the world-renowned 46 meter long gold plated reclining Buddha. Wat Pho is one of Bangkok's most oldest temples and holds a the highest grade of first-class royal temples. It was originally named Wat Photaram, referring to the monastery of the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India where Buddha attained enlightenment.
