Also known as Wat Phra Chetuphon, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, this 200-year-old Wat is Bangkok's largest. Bursting with history, its highlight is the fantastic gold-plated reclining Buddha. At 46 meters long and 15 meters high, the Buddha is a striking figure to see and is inlaid with pearl on it's feet. Wat Pho is Thailand's oldest learning center. A respected Thai massage school operates here as well. Teaching techniques are taught to the eager, and massages are provided to the weary. Fortune tellers are known to wonder the grounds. The temple's full name is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Ratchaworamahawihan.
