Wat Po

Wat Po (officially: Wat Pra Chetupon Wimolmangalaram) is also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It's the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok and is considered the first university of Thailand. It's still the national headquarters for the teaching and preservation of traditional Thai medicine, including Thai massage.
