Wat Phra Chetuphon or otherwise known as ‘The Reclining Temple of Buddha’ is situated on Maharat Road, near the Grand Palace, and was built around 1788. The temple was built to encourage education to Thai medicine and massages. The temple... more was restored and extended during 1824-51 under King Rama III and finally restored again in 1982. It is built around two walled compounds consisting of the main temple, a massage school and a Buddhist monastery.

Wonders and prayerful, I studied a lot at the temple. I compared Christianity and the Buddhism during my research at the Buddha temple. It was amazing to me.
