Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is right behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha – it’s a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok. It is one of the most important Buddhist temple complexes in the Thai capital. You will discover many beautiful things: colorfuly decorated chedis, golden Buddha statues, beautiful mural paintings, stone statues and many different temple buildings. As one of the largest temple complexes in the city, it’s famed for its giant reclining Buddha that is 46 meters long, covered in gold leaf.The Buddha’s feet are 5 meters long and exquisitely decorated in mother-of-pearl illustrations of auspicious laksanas (characteristics) of the Buddha.
Wat Saket in Bangkok, better known as the Golden Mount, is a Buddhist temple located in the Pom Prap Sattru Phai district. This impressive temple complex is certainly one of the most beautiful sights in Bangkok. It takes 318 steps up to the golden Chedi, and from the top, the scenery is awe-inspiring. Here, from the terrace, you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view far across the rooftops of the city. But also the ascent to Wat Saket, with all its beautiful bells, mystical statues and many details, is really worth seeing.
And of course there is more to discover in the third part of my video series about Bangkok. I hope you will enjoy watching.
