Wat Pho also known as Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn or temple of the reclining Buddha, is well known among locals and tourists for its 46 meters long and 15 meters tall golden reclining Buddha and for its splendid gardens and massage school, where you can get one of the best traditional Thai massages in Thailand.
