Temple of the Emerald Buddha – Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram / Wat Phra Kaew
On the grounds of the Grand Palace, this sacred temple is renowned for its Emerald Buddha The Grand Palace more than lives up to its name. The white exterior walls keep the priceless relics hidden from the public, but upon paying the entrance fee, visitors are treated to views of towering spires and stunning temples across the grounds. A second must-see inside the palace walls is Wat Phra Kaew, otherwise known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Inside, a smallish emerald and gold-laden Buddha dons a cloak that the king changes with the passing of each season.
