At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Peacefully reclining Buddha.

The temple of Wat Pho (Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn) was the most important temple in the reign of King Rama I, originating in the Chakri Dynasty. Built on the site of an ancient monastery dating from the Ayuttahya period, to the south of the Grand Palace, the temple is separated into two parts: the sacred part (Buddhavas) and the residential part occupied by the monks (Sangghavas).

The Reclining Boudda (Phra Vihara of the Reclining Buddha) is undoubtedly the most impressive monument at Wat Pho. This impressive reclining giant is covered in gold leaf. He measures 46m in length and is 15m high. The special atmosphere of the temple is characterised by the clinking sound of coins dropping into the 108 bronze bowls, as this is said to bring good luck to the temple's visitors.
The four main chedis, long lines of Buddha statues, and the grandiose murals are also a must-see.
Wat Pho is also a renowned centre for traditional Thai massage.
