  • This 37m long Reclining Buddha is all that remains of a once royal temple....the 8m high Buddha’s head is resting on a lotus and at the opposite end of his body, his legs and feet overlap squarely...

  • I am Thai but my Japanese friend recommended me to come this place. I don’t know what we call this kind of Buddha in English. My friend said this is for relaxing Buddha haha yes it is. I visited that time there is a little cute tour guide girl. She is so adorable , she see her mother doing everyday. She will tell you how to respect the Buddha and see what is behind the Buddha.
  • Secluded - especially on the weekdays. But definitely worth a visit as the place itself is like a mini park. The quaint landscape is serene as you can wander and take breathtaking photos. It can be a little hot though.
