This building that houses the huge Reclining Buddha Image, The Vihara of the Reclining Buddha, or Phra  Buddhasaiyas ( Viharn Phranorn ),


This statue is 46 metres long, with the dimensions at the face of 15 metres high and at each foot of 3 metres high and 5 metres long. Housed in the Temple above left , item number 14 on the layout plan.


On my first visit to this Temple in 2010 it was so busy I did not manage to gain access. When you enter this building ( having removed your shoes ) you hear a strange  noise that never seems to stop. Its only when you go round the other side of the Reclining Buddha does it all become clear. Its all the people visiting this hall putting money into alms pots along the long  wall ( see photo below )
