Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, Bangkok

Buddha at Wat Pho temple, Bangkok

Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho temple in Bangkok, Thailand.

Traveling around Bangkok and Chiang Mai, I get the impression that there are Buddhist temples on almost every block in these cities. One of the most famous of the golden Buddhas that are found in the temples is the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho in Bangkok. It is also one of the largest Buddha statues in Thailand, measuring around 150 feet long and 45 feet high.

It is almost impossible to get an overall photo of the statue without using a very wide angle lens, which tends to distort proportions, so I chose to frame just a portion of the Buddha through the temple columns.
