The Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew)

The Emerald Buddah Temple (Wat Phra Kaew in Thai) is the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand and is located within the compound of the Grand Palace in Bangkok in the historic center of the Thai capital. It is the home of the legendary (and singular in the world) Emerald Buddha, even though it is actually made of jade, and it is wearing clothes made of gold thread. It is a stunning space. The royal monastery Phra Si Ratana provides a dazzling view when the sun is reflected off its golden walls. The paintings that are protected by the interior walls tell the terrifying story of the formation of the region.

Amazing temple.

Good

Unfortunately it’s tourism is way too much and makes it very difficult to move around the temple. Plus, it smells like feet as you have to take your shows off.
