Beautiful and different from other temples, as it was made from Italian marble. Entrance fee is 50 Baht so not expensive. Be aware of the dress code and leave your shoes at the entrance. If you only have time to visit 5 temples in Bangkok, surely put this one on your list. Not as busy as some of the others, so more peaceful.
Very peaceful and beautiful architecture Clear and quiet place 5 baht temple
Nice quiet place but heavily commercialized. Personally prefer those in rural areas with more natural scene. No offense.
One of Bangkok’s most beautiful temples is the Wat Benchamabophit, also known as “the marble temple”. I really enjoy my day trip with this temple. Very peaceful.
Known to foreigners as "the Marble Temple, " Wat Benchamabophit is another great spot for photographers around the globe. The iconic ordination hall (Thai: ubosot) of this temple is great for taking a shot at sunrise. But if you couldn't make it in morning time, you may take another shot of the opposite side from the west entrance as well in the late afternoon.
