This temple house the 3rd largest reclining buddha in the world.

What / Why :

Wat Hatyai Nai is the site of a large reclining Buddha measuring 35 metres long, 15 metres tall and 10 metres wide... Named Phra Phuttha Mongkhon, it is the third largest reclining Buddha in the world...

Go around behind and inside the large reclining Buddha there is a curious shrine and mausoleum. Around the walls inside are hundreds of cubbie holes. Each one of the cubbie holes contains the ashes of a deseased person. Some have photos of the occupant and other details such as the date of birth and death.

Inside the mausoleum there is a fortune telling device. Inserting a coin (5 or 10 Baht) causes the wheel to spin round. When it stops spinning the pointer will stop on a number. On either side of the machine are numbered shelves with fortunes inside written on pieces of paper. Take one that corresponds to your number for a highly accurate summary of the rest of your life.
