The capital of Thailand has many wonders. Thus, Bangkok city hotels never have a dearth of patrons, the malls and food courts overflow and the chief sights such as Wat Pho are abuzz with locals and foreigners.
What about Wat Pho
Just like the AVANI Atrium Bangkok stands out from among the other abodes, the Wat Pho stand out amidst all the hive of activity. The large expanse of land that is dedicated to the temple allows it to be the home of one of the largest collections of Buddha images in the entire country.
The Royal Connection
This temple had been treated with much reverence and esteem by the royal families of Thailand. Thus, King Rama III is known to have made several developments to the premises during his tenure. King Rama IV is the last to have made substantial improvements to the temple, though renovations and restorations occur frequently.
How Thai Healing Began
All tourists should know that they should pay homage to this temple each time they enjoy a heavenly massage in Thailand as Wat Pho is considered the home of traditional Thai massages. The temple had been a centre for public education much before the era of universities of formal education systems.
The Wat Pho Today
To date Wat Pho houses a separate unit which functions as a school for medicine, literature, Buddhism, history, custom and lexicography.
