Wat Pho, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, is a must for visitors to the country of Thailand and specifically travelers to the city of Bangkok. With the full name being Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Ratchaworamahawihan, the temple complex is one of the oldest and largest in the entire city. It is best known for its large, gold leaf-covered reclining Buddha. The reclining Buddha measures in at about 50 feet tall and 150 feet wide!
