Agree with JP.... this is a commonly photographed temple (full of tour groups everyday of the year). It's called the 'Reclining Buddha' not the 'Sleeping Buddha'. The gold color of this buddha is simply stunning... so why shoot/post in B/W?

Default To Robert_L: About the Buddha

Sleeping Buddha is the direct Thai translation of this Buddha. In Thai it's called "Pra Norn". "Pra" in this case means the Buddha, and "Norn" means sleeping. Reclining Buddha is the official name, but it does not really represent the real name of the Buddha.
