Bangkok's Wat Pra Keo,
the city's most famous temple, and Wat Poh,
home of a Reclining Buddha Statue

 

An expatriate who has lived in Thailand for many years told me that the Thai people live life more fully than Westerners because Thais fear death less. Who's to know? But looking at the face of the Buddha at the time of death, pictures 4 through 10, one does not see any fear. Indeed, one sees that the artist has given the Buddha an expression of love and compassion. To read the story of the Buddha's death click here.
