  • If you look under the scaffold you can see the elephants that greet you :-) I approached from the canal side and wasn't sure if it was open - it either was or people were being polite! To enter you ca...  more »
  • It is recommended that differs from other Thailand Temple temple is a Buddhist temple in Thailand are incorporating the European sculpture and decorative arts is because it seems so come take a look at. In passing the Royal Palace location close from the Palace area is so I think you can go.

  • The admission is free. Few visitors. So one can get a corner to the sit down and rest are looking for. Nevertheless, there are beautiful photo opportunities. Impressive door panels from mother of Pearl and very beautiful tiles in delicate colors that decorate the building.

  • Wat Ratchabophit was built during the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) and be a Royal Cemetery (for major and minor members of the Royal Family). It's located not far from Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. This beautiful temple is one of my favorite place. Eventhough the temple is quite small but rich of unique design and architecture especially the inside temple. Notice that the high entrance doors of the temple are beautiful decorated with inlaid mother-of-pearl, which represents various medals and decorations. Recommended to visit ....
  • I felt i visited a real temple, there was no tourists only locals and was lucky enough to arrive at the beginning of a prayer. Wonderful experience
  • A must to experience the Thai-style temple founded in 1869 A.D.. Clean, tranquil, beautiful Thai patterns and architecture. Open daily. Photography allowed in general. So many lovely angles to show the world one of the Thai famous temples. Some degree of European influence in the interior of the temple. This is in the vicinity of the Grand Palace. Royal Cemetery is also a very good place to experience Thai way of Architecture. There is the replica of Angkor Wat or the sort. No fee to everyone, including foreigners. What I love the most is the architecture in general, and the beauty of the tree flowers 'plumeria' -- the are older than 60 years. The flowers can be seen though out the year.
  • Well maintained temple like a Grand Palace. Cleanliness and landscaping is outstanding.
