Bangkok Temples Tour including reclining Buddha at Wat Pho
Thailand is predominantly a Buddhist country with around 95% of Thai's practicing the Theravada discipline of Buddhism. On this half-day guided tour you will visit three of the most famous wat's (the local name for temple) in Bangkok - Wat Traimit, Wat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit.
A Wat is a Buddhist building where both men and women can be ordained as monks or nuns.As you wander the streets of Bangkok it is not unusual to see monks walking along the road and it should come as no surprise as Thailand has over 26,000 Wat's.
Wat Traimit is also known as the temple of the Golden Buddha. The 3 meter tall statue is made from solid gold and weighs 5.5 tons and is a fine example of Sukhothai style art. You will then pass through Chinatown on your way to Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. At 46 meters in length and 15 meters high the Buddha is the largest in Bangkok and illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana. Your last stop is at Wat Benchamabophit, or the marble temple. This magnificent monastery was built out of white Italian marble from Carrara in the late 19th century.
