Description
Talking about Thai or traditional massage, many people like it because it allows us to relax, relieve body aches and fill up our energy to continue working. Each of us may have our own favorite place for a massage. In the old days, giving Thai massage was difficult since the traditional massage was a branch of science which required serious study from the traditional massage textbooks by learning from the ancestors from generation to generation and regular practicr to become professional and skillful. Nonetheless, did you know where the origin of Thai massage came from?
The origin of Thai massage occurred at Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn or Wat Pho which is an ancient temple from the Ayutthaya period. When King Phra Phutthayotfa Chulalok Maharat succeeded the throne to become King Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty, His Majesty was pleased to have this ancient temple restored and established it as the royal monastery of his reign. The temple had a significant restoration in the reign of King Phra Nangklao (King Rama III) and the most recent restoration during the 200th anniversary of Bangkok in 1982. Inside Wat Pho, there is a lot of intriguing art and architecture that reflect the wisdom of the ancestors in the old days leading to the present; whether it is the contorted hermit statues in the garden around the ordination hall which are the models for traditional massage inherited from the Ayutthaya period until present with a total of 80 postures for people who are interested in traditional massage. Or Wat Phra Chetuphon Stone Inscription, a stone engraved with Thai versification, stanzas, poems, rhymes, and knowledge from various branches adorned on the pillars around the temple to educate visitors. As a result, Wat Pho became the first open university in Thailand. It also has the notable architecture; Phra Wihan Phra Phuttha Saiyat where Phra Phuttha Saiyat with the auspicious 108 mother-of-pearl decoration on the Buddha image’s feet is enshrined, exquisite murals of the ordination hall-architecture in the late Ayutthaya period, which is home to King Rama I’s royal relics and ashes kept on the first level under the plaster base of the principal Buddha image, and beautiful murals. Wat Pho is also known as one of the temples with the most pagodas and there is a myth about the giants of Wat Pho which has been told for a long time. All the above information led to the UNESCO announcement of Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn as a Memory of the World which is a great honor for the country. This is another temple which is worthwhile for visiting and continues to preserve the items in the temple for later generations to learn and see the wisdom of their ancestors in the past.
Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn is located along Sanam Chai Road and Maha Rat Road adjacent to the Grand Palace, Grand Palace Subdistrict, Phra Nakon District, Bangkok. It is open daily from 08.00-17.00. Foreigners are required to purchase tickets, 20 baht for each person. Visitors must dress properly. For women, do not wear shorts that are above the knee while visiting.
