Wat Pho, Bangkok - Thailand 4K Travel Channel
Wat Pho in Bangkok is the first in the list of six first class Royal temples. A first class Royal temple classifies a temple, which was built or restored by the king. Although Wat Pho is not the most sacred temple in Bangkok, it is the most famous and most popular among tourists, because it is located directly south of the Grand palace.
Presumably it was founded in the 17th century when Bangkok became the capital and was enlarged and restored by king Rama I. The most famous sight, the Reclining Buddha, is in a pavilion next to the entrance. The statue is 46 m long and 15 m high. The soles of the foot are richly decorated with mother of pearl inlays. During our visit they were covered by plastic sheeting, because they are currently being restored.
The friendly restorer shows us a sketch of the decorations. On a photo, that we have taken on our first visit about 20 years ago, one can imagine the beauty.
In the next courtyard, whose entrance is flanked by two powerful guardians is the Medicine Pavilion with historical murals of Thai massage.
The whole area is dominated by four powerful Chedis, with a height of 42 m, which are lavishly decorated with mosaics and tiles. They were built by King Rama I, Rama III and Rama IV. The style is inspired by the the chedi in Ayutthaya. On the whole area you find further 71 Chedis, but none of them exceeds 10 m height.
The largest courtyard has covered corridors along the outer walls with a large number of Buddha statues. Here you find Phra Ubosot, the most sacred building. A golden Buddha-Statue sits enthroned inside. It was built by King Rama I and was also inspired by the style of Ayutthaya.
We recommend to visit Wat Pho early in the morning when it is not so crowded by tourists.

Wat Pho in Bangkok der erste von sechs Königlichen Tempel Erster Klasse. Als königlicher Tempel erster Klasse bezeichnet man einen Tempel der vom König gebaut oder restauriert wurde. Wat Pho ist zwar nicht der heiligste Tempel in Bangkok, aber einer der bekanntesten und bei Touristen sehr beliebt, da er direkt südlich des Königspalastes liegt.
Vermutlich wurde er im 17. Jahrhundert gegründet und als Bangkok Hauptstadt wurde, von König Rama I. erweitert und restauriert.
Direkt beim Eingang findet man in einem Pavillon die berühmteste Sehenswürdigkeit, den liegenden Buddha. Die Statue ist 46 m lang und 15 m hoch.
Seine Fußsohlen sind mit Perlmutt Einlegearbeiten außergewöhnlich reich gestaltet. Bei unserem Besuch waren sie jedoch durch Plastikplanen verdeckt, da sie zur Zeit restauriert werden.
Der freundliche Restaurator zeigt uns eine Skizze der Verzierungen. Anhand eines Bildes, das wir vor ca. 20 Jahren bei unserem ersten Besuch machten, kann man die Schönheit erahnen.
Im nächsten Innenhof, dessen Eingang von 2 mächtigen Wächtern flankiert wird befindet sich der Medizin-Pavillion mit historischen Wandmalereien zur Thai-Massage.
Die gesamte Anlage wird überragt von vier mächtigen Chedis, mit einer Höhe von 42 m, die reichhaltig mit Mosaiken und kacheln verziert sind. Sie wurden von König Rama I, Rama III und Rama IV errichtet. Sein Stil ist an den der Chedis in Ayutthaya angelehnt. Auf dem gesamten Gelände sind 71 weitere Chedis verteilt, deren Höhe aber 10 m nicht überschreiten.
Im größten Innenhof von Wat Pho sind eine Vielzahl von Buddhastatuen in überdachten Gängen entlang der Außenmauern aufgestellt. Hier befindet sich Phra Ubosoth, das heiligste Gebäude. Im Inneren thront ein goldener sitzender Buddha. Von König Rama I. errichtet, wurde auch er an den Stil von Ayutthaya angelehnt.
Wir empfehlen, Wat Pho am frühen Morgen besuchen, wenn er nicht so von Touristen überfüllt ist.

3 BEST TEMPLES IN BANGKOK THAILAND - Wat Arun, Wat Pho, Grand Palace
We were on a mission to visit the 3 best temples in Bangkok Thailand and we found them! Taking the Chao Phraya Express Boat is an easy way to visit both Wat Arun and Wat Pho which are two of the most beautiful Thailand Temples in the entire country!
One of the most popular Bangkok tourist places, the Grand Palace was a little more difficult to find. We didn’t end up making it in time to enter. We decided to come back the next day and we were finally able to explore the Grand Palace Thailand. We were shocked at how many other people were exploring it too! The Grand Palace was filled with the most tourists we have ever seen.
Our favorite Bangkok Temple was hands down Wat Arun Temple, otherwise known as the Temple of the Dawn. It is one of the only temples in Bangkok left that you can climb on. We got lucky while visiting Wat Arun because there weren’t that many tourists there.
A quick boat ride across the Chao Phraya River led us to another Buddhist Temple, Wat Pho or Temple of the Reclining Buddha. The Reclining Buddha is one of the most iconic figures in all of Bangkok Thailand and we were happy to see it. Wat Pho was pretty busy with tourists, but it was an incredible experience to finally see the Reclining Buddha.
In our opinion, the 3 Best Temples in Bangkok Thailand are:
1. Wat Arun - Temple of the Dawn (100 Baht entrance fee)
2. Grand Palace - (500 Baht entrance fee) Incredibly impressive, although expensive and too many tourists
3. Wat Pho - Temple of the Reclining Buddha (100 Baht entrance fee)

Wat Pho (Thailand) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Wat Pho in Thailand.
Wat Pho or, The Temple Of The Prone Buddha, is a famous religious landmark is the largest and oldest monastery complex in Bangkok.Almost two hundred years before Bangkok became the country’s official capital city under the rule of King Rama The First, a smaller temple complex already existed. The stylishly decorated buildings of Wat Pho developed in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today some of the buildings have a religious function whereas others form sections of an impressive museum. More than a thousand Buddha statues, some of them having originated from the early capital cities of Ayuthaya and Sukhothai, highlight the religious significance of Wat Pho. Thus those who come here are not only keen to inspect its treasures but they are also fascinated by the thousands of years old religious faith of the temple’s former inhabitants. Covering almost eight hectares the temples of Wat Pho provide a remarkable variety of interest and several opportunities for meditation and relaxation.

WAT PHO // Temple of The Reclining Buddha || Thai Traditional Massage School
Wat Pho, also known as Wat Po and The Temple of the Reclining Buddha was by far our favorite Temple in Thailand! Known for its huge Reclining Buddha, and its Traditional Thai massage school, Wat Pho is simply incredible! It was quite, it was very empty, inexpensive, and had the school of Thai massage on location! For those of you visiting Bangkok, you cannot go wrong with visiting Wat Pho. It's the best temple in Bangkok, Thailand.
TEMPLES IN BANGKOK - WAT ARUN & WAT PHO
Come with us as we explore some of the best temples in Bangkok! Thailand is famous for its beautiful temples and Bangkok has its fair share of them, as we find out when we take a wander around Wat Arun the Temple of Dawn, and Wat Pho with the Gold Reclining Buddha.
We also made a fun trip across Chao Phraya river via boat, definitely the best and cheapest way to get across. We had such a fun day and really recommend spending a day exploring these temples in Bangkok!

Wat Pho | Reclining Buddha Temple | Bangkok | Thailand
#watpho #bangkok #RecliningBuddhaTemple
Wat Pho is one of Bangkok's oldest temples. It existed before Bangkok was established as the capital by King Rama I. It was originally named Wat Photaram or Podharam, from which the name Wat Pho is derived. The name refers the monastery of the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India where Buddha is believed to have attained enlightenment. The older temple is thought to have been built or expanded during the reign of King Phetracha (1688–1703), but the date and founder are unknown. The southern section of Wat Pho used to be occupied by part of a French Star fort that was demolished by King Phetracha after the 1688 Siege of Bangkok.
After the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767 to the Burmese, King Taksin moved the capital to Thonburi where he located his palace beside Wat Arun on the opposite side of the river from Wat Pho. The proximity of Wat Pho to this royal palace elevated it to the status of a wat luang (royal monastery).
In 1782, King Rama I moved the capital from Thonburi across the river to Bangkok and built the Grand Palace adjacent to Wat Pho. In 1788, he ordered the construction and renovation at the old temple site of Wat Pho, which had by then become dilapidated. The site, which was marshy and uneven, was drained and filled in before construction began. During its construction Rama I also initiated a project to remove Buddha images from abandoned temples in Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, as well other sites in Thailand, and many of these Buddha images were kept at Wat Pho.
Wat Pho is one of the largest and oldest wats in Bangkok with an area of 50 rai or 80,000 square metres, and is home to more than one thousand Buddha images, as well as one of the largest single Buddha images at 150 feet (46 m) in length. The Wat Pho complex consists of two walled compounds bisected by Chetuphon Road running in the east–west direction. The larger northern walled compound, the phutthawat, is the part open to visitors and contains the finest buildings dedicated to the Buddha, including the bot with its four directional viharn, and the temple housing the reclining Buddha. The southern compound, the sankhawat, contains the residential quarters of the monks and a school. The perimeter wall of the main temple complex has sixteen gates, two of which serve as entrances for the public (one on Chetuphon Road, the other near the northwest corner).
The chapel and the reclining Buddha (Phra Buddhasaiyas, Thai: พระพุทธไสยาสน์) were built by Rama III in 1832. The image of the reclining Buddha represents the entry of Buddha into Nirvana and the end of all reincarnations. The posture of the image is referred to as sihasaiyas, the posture of a sleeping or reclining lion. The figure is 15 m high and 46 m long, and it is one of the largest Buddha statues in Thailand. The right arm of the Buddha supports the head with tight curls, which rests on two box-pillows richly encrusted with glass mosaics. The figure has a brick core, which was modelled and shaped with plaster, then gilded. The soles of the feet of the Buddha are 3 m high and 4.5 m long, and inlaid with mother-of-pearl. They are each divided into 108 arranged panels, displaying the auspicious symbols by which Buddha can be identified, such as flowers, dancers, white elephants, tigers, and altar accessories. At the center of each foot is a circle representing a chakra or energy point. There are 108 bronze bowls in the corridor representing the 108 auspicious characters of Buddha. Visitors may drop coins in these bowls as it is believed to bring good fortune, and it also helps the monks to maintain the wat.
Although the reclining Buddha is not a pilgrimage centre, it remains an object of popular piety. An annual celebration for the reclining Buddha is held around the time of the Siamese Songkran or New Year in April, which also helps raise funds for the upkeep of Wat Pho.

Bangkok, Thailand Travel Guide: Grand Palace, Chao Phraya River, Wat Pho Tour + AMAZING Thai Food
This is our city guide and a full-day tour of Bangkok during our Thailand Trip. Most of Bangkok's notable historical and cultural sites can be seen in a day or two. We partnered with Thai Tour Guide in a six-hour tour of the city that included the Grand Palace, a private long-boat ride on the Chao Phraya River, Wat Pho and a tasty Thai food lunch.
Our tour guide, Joy and a driver picked us up in a large van to transport us the different sites in a stress-free manner. First, we head to, The Grand Palace, the cities most famous landmark. It is a complex of buildings and has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam since 1782. Most tourists come to see Wat Phra Kaew, which houses the famous 14th century Emerald Buddha. This is Thailand's most sacred site, and out of respect, men and women, must wear long pants and shirts with sleeves. Young children are exempt from this rule.
After touring the Grand Palace, we head to the pier close by to take a long-tail boat cruise on the Chao Phraya River. Before boarding, our private boat we pick up delicious Thai ice tea, coffee, and some traditional Thai sweets. The ride from the long-tail boasts beautiful views of the Grand Palace and city skyline before heading to the traditional canals.
After the ride, we grab a quick lunch at the Krua Khun Kung at the Navy Club of Bangkok. Some of the highlights of the meal include a huge mango smoothie, Tom Yong Goong soup, and squid with salty egg.
We then make our way in the air-conditioned van to Wat Pho (Wat Po or The Temple of The Reclining Buddha), a Buddhist temple complex south of the Grand Palace. A must for any first-time visitor to Bangkok, it is famed for its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 meters long and is completely covered in gold leaf.
The tour also included a visit to Bangkok's Flower Market, but by this time our two batteries were drained from the filming. The market is not be missed either and gives you a glimpse of the importance of flowers in Thai culture.
To learn more about Thai Tour Guide visit: We highly recommend Joy, who was not only extremely knowledgable but compassionate and accommodating to our special needs as a family with three young children.

Wat Pho (วัดโพธิ์): The Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Bangkok, HD Experience
A swelteringly hot day at Wat Pho temple in Bangkok, one of the three MUST SEE temples in the city (other two being Wat Arun, and the Grand Palace). I think 39 degrees temperature, with very high humidity. Could have spent hours there, but the heat was unbearable, with very little shade. The golden reclining Buddha was a great sight, and fortunately it is indoors, away from the sun's glare! Recorded April 29, 2012.

HE TRIED TO SCAM US - Wat Arun and Wat Pho Bangkok
For the most part everyone in Thailand was very nice to us, but just like in every other country in the world, there are people looking to make a quick buck. There are lots of scams and people know how to pull one over on a tourist, so keep your head on straight and be aware!
When you visit Bangkok make sure you visit Wat Pho and Wat Arun!

WAT ARUN (วัดอรุณ) - Bangkok, Thailand
One of the most famous landmarks in all of Bangkok, Wat Arun, is surprisingly deceiving. Known as the 'Temple of Dawn' Wat Arun is on many Thai postcards being peddled to tourists. Located along the Chao Phraya river, Wat Arun is especially 'deceiving' for two main reasons.

1) From a distance the temple appears to be gray and a little drab; however, up close in person, it is very ornate.
2) This is easily the steepest temple I've ever climbed. Once again, from a distance there would be no way to tell this.
With steps that would have been more appropriately designed for a stilts than human feet, we ascended and descended the stairs with our eyes looking to the side (as opposed to down) and at times slinking down on our butts. It wasn't pretty but neither of us came tumbling down. In other words, mission accomplished.
The temple itself is fascinating both from afar and up close. It is definitely worth the price of admission and should be on our shortlist of things to do in Bangkok.
We boarded a river taxi, one of our favorite ways of getting around Bangkok, to visit one of the most iconic landmarks of the entire city.
Today is one of our last days in Thailand and actually one of our last days in Southeast Asia. We've decided to do a bit of sightseeing around Bangkok and we are visiting Wat Arun.
This is the Temple of Dawn located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya river.
I'm already sweating profusely and now it is time to go climb this massive temple.
I've seen Wat Arun a few times while traveling down the Chao Phraya river. It is really interesting because from a distance it just looks like it is a grey temple made out of concrete but once you actually get here and walk up close to it you can see all of the intricate little details like it is made up of broken tiles and ceramics. It is really cool. It is a bit of a surprise.
And it gets even steeper.
That was easily the scariest set of stairs I have ever climbed. The steps were like this high and they were only this wide, so your feet could barely fit on there. I had to come down seated the whole time - like just on my butt.
Some tips for visiting Wat Arun. First, make sure you bring tonnes of water. We brought two water bottles and we've just guzzled them. I swear, I've sweated about half of my body weight. And second, even though it is a really steep climb - even if you're afraid of heights like I personally am - it is still worth going up. The views are amazing.
This is part of our Travel in Thailand series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Thai culture, Thai arts, Thai foods, Thai religion and Thai people.

A Day In Bangkok, Thailand!: Grand Palace & Wat Pho
The demon Guardians protect the buddha from evil spirits.
We got to see some Thai dancing by these awesome women keeping their traditions alive!
If you forget to dress appropriately, there is a place to rent clothes from, but I’m not sure how much it is and there was a line for it.
The architecture is so different from what we’ve seen before. Although Cambodia also had amazing details and carvings in their traditional buildings, Thai architecture has these bold, beautiful colors that I adored!
Admission to the Grand Palace is 500 baht or around $16 USD each. But like most sacred sites, if you’re a Thai National, it’s free.
The Grand Palace was built in 1782 when Thailand was still Siam. For 150 years it was home to the Thai Kind and the Royal Court. Today, it’s considered one of the most sacred places in Thailand.
I later read that the Angkor Wat model was built when Cambodia was under control by the Siamese by order of King Rama the fourth.
The Grand Palace closes surprisingly early at 3:30 pm so we definitely recommend getting there early in the morning in order to explore all 218,000 square meters of it!
Many of these buildings weren’t built for prayer, but rather as administrative buildings.
I seriously couldn’t get enough of these colored glass mosaics. I might redesign our flat. I think it’s a good idea.
This is the Buddist library …Sigh, Libraries are the best.
Originally, the palace was built of wood and scavenged materials. But it was slowly replaced and enhanced into the splendor you see here!
Unlike the Palace, Buddist Monks actually live here.
It was just a 10 minute walk here from the Palace.
It was so much more relaxed here with way fewer people than the Palace.
Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Ratchaworamahawihan
It was 200 baht to get in or about $6.50 USD.
This was the first public university in Thailand. It specialized in Science, Literature and, of course, Religion.
The school of Thai medicine is located here, so you can actually get a Thai Massage on site here too!
Wat Pho temple complex boasts the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand
