This was amazing. New seen anything quite so big. The smaller statues showing all the hand positions and what they meant was also very good.

It is a must for tourists to go and check it out! This temple is free to get in, but you can donate if you want. The reclining Buddha image is very unique, very nice design and preserve. It is worth visiting

This reclining Buddha is one if the largest that we have seen. It is androgynous, and full of detail.

This place is famous mostly for the reclining Buddha statue, but make sure to walk around the full temple so you can view other nooks and crannies
