Wat Pho is home to the largest reclining Buddha in the world, over 46m long and covered in gold! Yes aunties, 5 TONNES of pure gold!
The Buddha's feet are 3 metres long and exquisitely decorated in mother-of-pearl illustrations of the Buddha.
This reclining position depicts the time when Buddha left this world.

This photo doesn't do justice, he is much more impressive up front. Oh and the sleeping buddha aint too bad either! ;o)
