Wat Pho

Wat Pho was just a boat ride from Wat Arun
It was bigger, more beautiful and very grand.

Followed a monk as we entered…watpho1watpho2watpho5Glad he didn’t notice or ignored the shadow
because some tourists asked an elderly monk
to take a picture with him and the monk refused.

and devotees assemble from far and near to catch a glimpse of this statue.

While these temples and temple complexes are beautiful
I was a little perplexed to see massage parlours in these areas
wondering if it it is part of the spiritual experience these temples offer.
