Located in the located in the Rattanakosin district of Bangkok, Wat Pho (or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha) is home to a gigantic, golden-and-glass-mosaic-ensconced figure of the Buddha in repose. It seems appropriate that this should be the reputed birthplace of the restorative art of Thai Massage.

One of the oldest and largest wats in Bangkok, Wat Pho has undergone many periods of decline and restoration. The latest of these was in the early 1980s and today the temple complex is a very popular tourist destination and site of devote religious observance.
