Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok

Posted by Kim Aroon

Bangkok, Thailand

Wat Pho is definitely a special Buddhist temple in Bangkok and is not far away from the Royal Palace in Rattanakosin, the traditional Bangkok town. The official name of the temple is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Ratchaworamahawihan. Still, the local people call the complex after its old name Wat Pho or Wat Photharam, which is designed to point out the Bodhi tree monastery in Bodhgaya. The temple complex opens its doors at 8:30 a.m., and the entrance fee is 100 baht per person along with a small bottle of water. We advise going to the temple at the start of the morning, as the rush of vacationers is biggest around midday. As a Buddhist temple, the overall dress code also applies at Wat Pho: long trousers, covered shoulders, no deep necklines. The shoes should be removed at the designated places.
