recipes & lifehacks
As for the wish-making ritual, you will find 108 special bowls by the big Buddha, and you will need to drop a coin in each of them (coins can be bought right on the spot, for 20 baht). So much for the magic, all that is left is to cleanse your chakra with a Thai massage that, by the way, can be done right there, and then start exploring the temple’s territory, feeling a completely different person.
But all jokes aside, the temple does retain some magic – the building was made as early as in the 12th century and has definitely accumulated the powerful energy of the centuries. The impression is especially strong if you come here after 6 pm and ask the guard, for a small fee, to let you in on the exit side. In the absence of visitors, in the moonlight the temple transforms and looks completely ethereal!
Where to do?
You can not only stare at the 46-meter golden Buddha and lots of little buddhas at the temple, but also thoroughly cleanse your karma and attract luck.11
