Wat Pho is most famous for the huge Reclining Buddha statue it houses. Covering 20 acres, it is the largest Wat in Bangkok. It is technically the oldest too, as it was built around 200 years before Bangkok became Thailand’s capital. It holds the dual honors of having both Thailand’s largest reclining Buddha image and the largest number of Buddha images in Thailand.
