Traditional Thai massage illustrations

In addition to housing the largest and quite stunning reclining Buddha, Wat Pho also holds the distinction of being Thailand's first university, and is center for traditional Thai massage - the rich, famous and powerful have all been known to come here. Inscribed on stone in the walls of Wat Pho are all that was known about Thai massage dating from the reign of King Rama III (most previous texts were lost when the Burmese destroyed Ayuthaya the early capital of Thailand)
