Starting the week with the blessings of 15 metres tall, 46 metres long, covered in gold leaf - Reclining Buddha, so large it feels like as if he has been squeezed into the building at WatPho, Bangkok.
For the first time visitors to Bangkok, recommend visiting this site that includes four chapels containing 394 gilded Buddha images, long lines of golden statues from different parts of Thailand sitting in the lotus position.
You may consider purchasing a bowl of coins at the hall which you can drop in the 108 bronze bowls that are lined the length of the walls. Dropping the small coins in, make a nice ringing sound. Even if your wishes don’t come true, the money goes towards helping the monks renovate and preserve Wat Pho.
