Thailand: Wat Pho

On Monday I got two postcards: one from Thailand and one from Australia.

The card from Thailand shows Wat Pho. Wat Pho is a first class royal temple in Bangkok's Old Town. It was rebuilt by King Rama I on an earlier temple site and was later expanded by Rama III. The temple houses the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand including a giant reclining Buddha. Wat Pho is also considered to have been the earliest centre for public education in Thailand and the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. 

With nice stamps:
Heritage Conservation Day (from set of four) (issued 02-04-1993)
Heritage Conservation Day (from set of four) (issued 02-04-1996)
Royal Forest Department (from set of four) (issued 18-09-1996)

Thank You very much Jobbo!
