The temple was erected two centuries even before Bangkok turned into the Thai capital. Far from its original appearance, the temple’s present looks owes to Rama I. The temple is famous for being the country’s biggest reclining Buddha and the highest amount of Buddha images in Thailand. In terms of its size, the Buddha is 45 meters in length and 14 in height, with the impression of entering of the Buddha entering the nirvana state.
