Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew), Bangkok

(4.3/5 based on 11,000+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand at Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew). Located in the precincts of the Grand Palace, the temple houses an emerald Buddha statue carved from semi-precious green stone and covered in gold--deemed to be the palladium (protective image) of Thailand. The surrounding buildings, sculptural forms, and murals complement the regal and spiritual atmosphere of the room in which the Buddha is kept. Take time to wander the grounds, a great place to get lost in. See Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) and all Bangkok has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bangkok tourist route planner.
