Best Buddha temple that we saw in Thailand. We took the free guide that is available once you are inside the premises of the temple (free tour is available at fixed timing of 10:00, 12:00, 13:30 etc. We tagged along with the 13:30 group and saved at least 500 Baht). The inside of the temple was pristine and serene. We were wowed by it's beauty. Visited quite a few other temples in Thailand, but none was as good as the Emerald Buddha.

This is a stunning and significant temple within the grounds of the grand palace attraction. I never quite understand why people on TA break up attractions (with paid entry) into all their individual sub components.

It's Thailand. The most beautiful temple buildings. Rich golden colors everywhere. Too many tourists make overcrowded inside. Anyhow it's the place worth to visit.
Grand palace is in the same region.

The template is very busy as it's situated in the Grand Palace grounds. The Buddha itself is actually quite small but the building & surroundings are beautiful.
