Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a beautiful golden temple within the Grand Temple. If you look up close the dome is formed through millions of tiny gold tiles. It looked amazing in the February sunshine!

This wonderful golden stupa or chedi belongs to the Emerald Buda Temple in the Royal Palace. Situated on the west end of the upper terrace. Built by Rama IV in the middle of the 19th century- It reminds of the ancient pagodas of Ayutthaya.. The chedi is covered with small gold mirrored tiles, making it a bit shinier than other pagodas that are just painted with gold. It houses a piece of the Buddha's breastbone.

We had visited the beautiful Wat Phra temple complex during our holidays in Bangkok and this giant golden stupa shinning brightly in the sunlight was located inside the temple complex. The architecture is inspired by the stupas found in the historical city of Ayuthaya. Tourists from all over the world was busy clicking pictures with the golden stupa.

The Place you don't miss when you visit Thailand. The structure of this Chedi is influenced by such ancient structures found amidst Ayutthaya ruins. It is a stupa where the golden exterior stands out pretty quickly amidst all the other structures on the premises.

This recognizable and imposing structure is one of the first sites upon entering the Grand Palace. While grand and impressive, it is relatively simple in intricacy in comparison to the many Wats and buildings around it.

This golden, bell-shaped stupa is stunning in its simplicity. Not until I returned to Florida did I learn of its significance. Properly spelled Phra Si Ratana Chedi (chedi is an alternative word for stupa, which is a dome-shaped structure that serves as a Buddhist shrine), this stupa recalls the monumental pagodas of the old capital in Ayutthaya. The chedi/stupa is faced with small gold mirrored tiles, making it much shinier than pagodas that are simply gilded. This chedi/stupa, moreover, houses a piece of Buddha’s breastbone. The design is influenced by Sri Lanka architecture. When the three stupa are aligned, notice the distinctive architecture of each (depicted in the accompanying photos). The more domed-like structures are Cambodian, whereas the steep spires are Thai. When at Grand Palace, our tour group enjoyed experiencing "Changing of the Guard". Caution: If you see them coming, move out of the way. They're like tanks!☺

This golden Stupa ( in Sanskrit stup- a hemispheric structure containing relics- remains of Buddhist monks - a place for meditation) contain relics of the Lord Buddha.

This Stupa has a circular base and a bell shape top.

It was erected during the rein of King Rama iv in 1855.
