The reclining buddha is 38 meters logo its an interesting temple with a lovely lotus tiled floor.There are lots of family urns along the wall . Worth a visit
We enjoyed our short visit to the Sleeping Buddha temple. Very active temple, and very photographic. The signs posted with rules (Beware of Shoe Thieves, etc.) were absolutely hysterical. After seeing this, cross the street to the Burmese temple.
This Thai Buddhist temple is actually a Columbarium where niches as old as the 19th Century can be found under the reclining Buddha which stretches 33 metres in length. Pictures will turn out great with high contrast due to the brightly crafted statues of Devas and other mythical creatures on the temple grounds.

There are no gardens here, but there are some rather beautiful statues around the temple complex.

Was touched by the various candles lit surrounded by exam timetables presumably to get better results for the candle buyers in... More
This is a great temple with an impressive sleeping Buddha statue. There is lots of colour and lots of gorgeous reliefs and designs. Te Lotus flower tiled floor was my favourite part of the complex. Combine it with the Burmese temple across the street and a trip to Gurney Drive. Definitely a must.
The sign says beware of shoe thieves but the serenity in this place means all shoes are safe. Just a beautiful temple to be in whilst the Buddha was awesome. Buy a gold leaf for 1 RM and carefully place it on the statues in the front, making a wish or spend .50 cents for a turn on the wheel... More
