Temple of the Reclining Buddha

This temple dates back to the 1500s and is the oldest in Thailand. The reclining Buddha located in the northern section was made in the 1800s and is almost 150 feet long and 15 feet high. It is made of cement-covered brick and coated with gold leaf. The soles of the feet are inlaid with mother-of-pearl with 108 signs, marks and qualities by which a true Buddha is recognized. It is considered good luck to drop coins into the begging bowls that lie by Buddha's spine. There are a vast number of chedis located nearby as well. Visitors can also opt for Thai massages here.
