My favourite temples and shrines in Bangkok.

The temple (called a "wat" in Thai) is a holy place, and there are specific rules to be observed on temple grounds. Read more about do and don't in a Thai temple on the Sidebar >>>

Wat Pho (Wat Phra Chetuphon) (วัดโพธิ์)

Wat Pho is one of Bangkok's oldest temples and of great beauty. A big attraction is the 46-meter long reclining Buddha. Note the extensive decorations on Buddha's feet, they are really amazing. Another attraction is the traditional Thai massage that is given in the form of normal, herbal or foot massage.
