A Thai temple with the reclining buddha. In order to get into the temple, you need to remove your hat/cap as well as your shoes. Not many ppl during my visit. Parking is limited inside, alternatively there is plenty off street parking during my visit.

On the opposite side of the Birmanese temple. A little bit to much plastic, including the reclaiming Buddha.

The largest reclining Buddha! This does not take long to view, but spend time on the grounds as they are beautiful. Sometimes there is an ice cream truck that comes by. Take advantage of that!!
