Wat Pho Grounds

The large grounds of Wat Pho contain more than 1000 Buddha images in total, most from the ruins of the former capitals Ayuthaya and Sukhothai. [1]

What a lot of people don’t know is that Wat Pho also houses Thailand’s first University, it is the centre for traditional Thai massage instruction and it also has a primary school onsite. All of which is set amongst architecture that in many instances is older than the city of Bangkok itself.
