Wat Po paintings

Everyone who's been to Bangkok has been to Wat Po. It's known for 2 things: the giant statue of the reclining Buddha, and its massage school.

It's also got some great chedi (or stupas).

As well as outstanding mural painting, only about a third of which is visible to a person walking on the floor. For the rest you'd need a ladder or a scaffold.

And then there are the beautiful ladies . . .
