Wat Phra Kaew, commonly known in English as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and officially as Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram, is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. The complex consists of a number of buildings within the precincts of the Grand Palace in the historical centre of Bangkok.
Located at the northeast corner of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Wat Phra Kaew is one of Thailand's most famous Buddhist temples and one of Thailand's three national treasures. The Jade Buddha Temple is the most sacred place in Thai Buddhism. It is the guardian temple of the Chakuri Dynasty and the Huguo Temple. The Jade Buddha Temple built in 1782 is part of the Grand Palace of Thailand and covers an area of about 1/4 of the Grand Palace. The Jade Buddha Temple is a place where the Thai royal family worships jade Buddha statues and holds religious ceremonies. It is named after the temple dedicated to the Jade Buddha. Inside the temple are the Jade Buddha Hall, the First Wang Dian, the Buddha Bone Hall, the Tibetan Classic Court, the Bell Tower and the Golden Pagoda. Tickets for the Jade Buddha Temple are common to tickets for the Grand Palace.
In addition to the Daxiong Hall, there are other palaces in the Jade Buddha Temple. The buildings such as the Book Collection are very Thai-style and are magnificent. The sun is dazzling, because there is no tour guide, we are visiting ourselves. The whole building is very luxurious, and the buildings are reflective when you look closely, because there are reflective glass pieces on the outside of the building.
Ti Shu Shu Ge and Shwedagon Pagoda, this Golden Pagoda is definitely the most eye-catching building of the entire Jade Buddha Temple. It is golden from top to bottom. The square building next to it is the library. It is the most powerful, and it is dedicated to a classic made of gold.
There are many statues in the entire Jade Buddha Temple, different postures, but very Thai. Is this statue familiar? If you have been to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, you must be impressed. There are several such statues in the airport standing in the check-in hall. This is my Thai impression. I like this pair of gods the most, the upper body is the daughter body, the lower body is the lion body, the lion body fairy, very beautiful.
The roofs of many temples in Thailand are such a shape, a bit like a corn bag, and a bit like a stupa, a special shape, but a memory of Thai culture.
