About Wat Phra Kaew

Wat Phra Kaew, or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is located in the northeast corner of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The temple is a must-see site for Thai tourists.

The architecture of the temple is magnificent, the statue of Buddha is adorned with gold, jade, and jewels, and the temple combines many characteristics of Buddhist temples in Thailand. The architecture of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha includes fearsome guardians, the rare jade statue of Buddha, and a towering chedi. This temple is a Bangkok icon.
