The last time (and first time) I went in here was back in 2007 (as though that was long ago). That time I only had a short time and had to rush to the airport right after. So I saw the reclining Buddha, was satisfied, and went back home.
So I though, I’ve already seen it, what else is there to see? So this time when I went there, I just went in for the sake of seeing it again. But this time, I realised that the Buddha is just 10% of the massive place!
This inside is huge! And its sort of similar to Wat Phra Kaew in the Grand Palace (which you had to pay THB 350), with much much less crowd. This costs only THB 50 per entry, what a steal!
Lots of Buddha statues there… largest collection of Buddha images, according to my Lonely Planet guidebook.
And for some strange reason… plenty of Chinese-influenced statues!
