To the sky by train
Only in Bangkok are there more than a thousand different temples. Few cities in the world have a skyline like this city, made up of sanctuaries, skyscrapers, and luxurious palaces. Or such a modern train, the Skytrain, used to travel to pay homage to the gods.
The Wat Pho temple is unmissable on any tour of Thailand.] A 15-metre-high reclining Buddha that is 46 metres long occupies most of the building. The figure, made of gold plaster and bricks, and coated with a fine layer of gold leaf is the largest reclining Buddha in Thailand. His feet alone are three metres high and over four metres wide. This is a colossal size for a Buddha who, in contrast to his relaxed position, is not resting, but is in the posture that represents his passage to Nirvana. Also, in 1782 the first official school of traditional therapeutic massage was founded, which you can now enjoy in the establishments in the district of Rattanakosin, very close to the Royal Palace.
Many Buddhas, such as the Reclining Buddha, are coated in gold leaf, but the one that dominates the Wat Traimit temple weighs five tons and is made of solid gold. It was built in the former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya, in the 13th century. Years later, the statue was re-coated with stucco to protect it from the thieves that besieged the city, and it was forgotten.
