Reclining Buddhas in Thailand

A reclining Buddha is a statue that represents Buddha during his last moments and entry into Nirvana and the end of all reincarnations (the cycle of death and rebirth). He is lying on the right side with his head resting on a cushion or relying on his right elbow, supporting his head with his hand.

The statues are often huge, and there is something exciting about them. Here are three big reclining Buddhas I have visited and the name of the temples that house them.
