Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho

Bangkok has many Buddhist temples and although I haven’t spent a long time in the city, I have been to a few of the more famous ones. One of them is Wat Pho, near the Grand Palace. Also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha this is the biggest Buddha statue (or any statue for that matter) that I have seen. It is 15 metres high and 43 metres long. I included a couple of tourists in the lower left corner of the photograph to give a proper sense of scale.
