Ringing offerings next to Buddha


Wat Pho (วัด โพธิ์ Thai, Wat Po) is one of the largest and oldest Buddhist temples in Bangkok. Eight acres, the temple hosts a multitude of stupa and a huge Buddha  (พระพุทธ ไสยาสน์). Lying on his deathbed close to nirvana, the statue is 45 meters long and 15 meters high. The feet are inlaid with pearls representing 108 states of the Buddha.

One building is dedicated to the statue, the flood of tourists is flowing without interruption to photograph the Buddha. 25 bols are arranged along the Buddha to collect the offerings of the faithful. The sound resounds in the bowls. We offer you a few minutes of this melody …

Note also that the Wat Pho hosts a Thai massage school and traditional medicine.
