Intl Saturdays 47: The Golden Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho








I may have seen endless number of Buddha statues, but this one was sheer magnificence! It's not just the golden colour which gives it an air of regality, but it's also the massive size, the intricate paintings depicting stories around its walls, the carvings on the bed on which the Buddha is reclining. Behind the statue, the are earthern pots in which people keep dropping coins which adds an element of divine sound to the whole temple. You can just look at the Buddha in nothing but awe.

Take Care,
