What travelers say:

The Emerald Buddha Temple once enshrined the Emerald Buddha of Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. According to legend, in 1434, lightning struck the pagoda in the temple. After the pagoda fell, the Emerald Buddha hidden inside was revealed. This national treasure was later enshrined in Wat Phra Kaew. The jade Buddha enshrined in the temple was carved in China in 1991 in the style of the original jade Buddha. In addition, there is another ancient Buddha in the temple, which is made of alloy material and cast with Indian Bara art, which has a history of nearly 700 years.
