One of the best things you should have missed. rich of cultural utter of royal arts and historical of Thai and influrence of Buddhism.
This temple is beautiful, the statues, the buildings, the grounds...but it is not meant to be a tourist attraction (it is a place of prayer) therefore crowds do not move well through the area. I do completely understand the crowds though. It is an amazing complex.
One of the most beautiful place I've ever visited. The architecture was just truly Amazing! When you look closely you can find those exquisite details. It could get a bit crowded sometimes but well worth it. It's a must visit place when you go to Thailand. Highly recommend
Golden and brilliant! At first, I thought it was the Grand Palace. Many tour groups in the foolish Kazakhstan temple had loud explanations from tour guides. There were many people. Even when we went to lunch, it was very difficult to take pictures of nobody. There were dress requirements. The lower body should cover the knee and the coat should have sleeves. Before, I heard that slippers or toes could not be worn, but many people did not observe some small ones. Architecture like pavilion, can only take off shoes, can not smoke, can not wear shoes to go up to the main hall need to take off shoes, enter the inner hall can not take photos, there are staff command to kneel before worship, Buddha statues, murals, sculptures are very gorgeous, with a lot of gold and glazed elements, it is worth seeing ~in general really blind.~
Wat Phra Kaew, located in the northeast corner of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, is the most famous Buddhist temple in Thailand and one of the three great treasures of Thailand. Jade Buddha Temple accounts for about one fourth of the area of the Great Palace. There are three main parts in the Jade Buddha Temple: the Ubosot and the Emerald Buddha, which surround the corridor of the Jade Buddha Temple with 178 murals and 12 pavilions around the Daxiong Palace; the Jade Buddha is carved from the whole Jade Buddha (because it can not see the green color of the Jade Buddha statue in its brocade robe). You can't take pictures inside the Daxiong Palace, but you can take pictures outside the Palace.

Thai tourism, want to understand the history and culture of Thailand, the preferred Grand Palace and Jade Buddha Temple, Jade Buddha Temple and the Grand Palace is only one door apart. Jade Buddha Temple, as a holy place of Thai Buddhism, worships Jade Buddha, a great treasure of Thailand. Every day, the King of Thailand must pray for an hour before Jade Buddha. There are Jade Buddha Hall, Ancient King Hall, Buddha Bone Hall, Tibetan Sutra Pavilion, Bell Tower and Golden Pagoda in the temple.
Come on December 24, 2017. The Jade Buddha Temple is adjacent to the Grand Palace. It belongs to a scenic spot with a ticket of 500 baht. I think Jade Buddha Temple can be regarded as the first attraction in Bangkok and even the whole of Thailand. You can't miss it when you come to Bangkok. Jade Buddha Temple is very large, probably the largest temple complex in Thailand, and its architectural style is very rich. You can see almost all kinds of architecture, statues and altars in different periods. It is a treasure house of traditional Thai art. Even more rare is that most areas of the entire Jade Buddha Temple complex are open to the outside world, tourists visit again, absolutely feasting their eyes. If you are serious about sightseeing, it is necessary to spend 2-3 hours.
The Jade Buddha Temple in Bangkok is located on the side of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. It was originally a royal temple. Tourist temples generally have dress requirements, basically demanding solemn, not exposed; in addition, not photography and video; not loud and noisy. For these religious requirements, visitors should abide by, otherwise they should not visit, no one forced you to visit. Visitors are basically Chinese. The pictures on display are all outside the Jade Buddha Temple. It is magnificent and magnificent.
