Feet First

Wat Pho is one of the most highly ranked Buddhist temples in Thailand, and is also one of the busiest tourist sites.

 

It has a number of claims to fame, but this 47 metre long goldleaf clad Reclining Buddha image is certainly one of them.

I love the perspective of the feet first! Seems the only way you could've gotten the whole thing in - but it works!!

Great POV and LOL at Elizabeth, she makes a point here.
I think it is hard to meditate here with all those tourists around, do they have special 'rooms' where they meditate?
Phew, this is quite an impressive perspective Ray!
I really like the tourists here, Ray, who give scale to this monstrosity!

I have heard of this place, even at all this distance Ray. Bet they all flock there. If only we could do the same with a gold image of R Trim in Suffolkshire, the world might then become miraculously a better place
That is impressive by any standards Ray

That's some feat of craftsmanship then. I like the patterns on the soles; probably appreciated by the visiting souls.
I love the toeprints Ray, this is the first time that I have seen the underside of a Budha foot.
Good p.o.v Ray. An impressive statue indeed.
I think we may have visited here before. That Buddha has very long legs and a golden complexion.
Ray: I believe we went there many years ago, Mary.
