Photographer's Note

The Reclining Buddha or Pha Buddasaiyat faces the Grand Pagoda in Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Mai.

It is an old Buddha statue of gilded brick and plaster, believed to have been created during the reign of King Phra Muang Kaeo (1487 - 1517), the eleventh monarch of the Mang Rai Dynasty. The head of the reclining Buddha statue is orientated towards the south and faces the ancient Grand Pagoda.

The reclining Buddha measuring almost 9m long and 2m high is housed in an open sided pavilion built under the supervision of the Venerable Phra Buddhisophon the abbot in 1955.

Wanted to use the perspective of the shadow of the railing on the balcony to create this shot
