Totally impressed by Wat Chayamangkalarm! The Reclining Budda Temple is a traditional Thai Buddist Temple which features the 4th largest reclining Buddha in the world. The magnificent gold covered statue is over 100 feet long.

We spent over an hour walking around in this temple. Quite beautiful with the huge reclining Buddha. It really is worth a visit when in Penang. Be sure to walk around outside, too.
