About the Tour
Welcome to the narrated, offline, self-guided walking tour of the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) in Bangkok, Thailand! The Buddha measures 151 feet long making it the largest sleeping / reclining Buddha statue in Thailand. The complex also houses the most buddha statues in all of Thailand. Along with the famous reclining Buddha, Wat Pho features a whopping 394 Buddhas that can be found spread out between four different chapels on-site.
Be sure to download the Action Tour Guide app beforehand (check your email for the link) so that you can start walking as soon as you arrive at the gates. You’ll immediately notice the architectural style is quite different from other temples. As you walk, you’ll hear about what makes the temple special.
The tour then leads you through the temple. Be sure to follow the route as you listen. You’ll learn that Wat Pho was believed to be founded during the 16th century and was later served as The Royal Temple of King Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty. Thais call Wat Pho as “the nation’s first public university”. Over 1,360 marble inscriptions about liberal, historical and medical sciences adorn the temple, enabling people to learn anytime.
As you walk, you will come across these marble inscriptions, which are the origins of Wat Pho Thai traditional massage principles, making Wat Pho a world-famous site. Our tour wraps up near where we began.
