Temple of the Emerald Buddha
The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is in the Royal Palace in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Temple of the Emerald Buddha was built in the eighteenth century by King Rama I. This temple is more of a personal chapel for the royal family; however, it is also open to the public.
The Bot is the most important, and the largest, building in the shrine. It houses a 66-cm high statue of Buddha, carved out in green jade. It is mainly the architectural grandeur of the temple that attracts tourists. Buddha’s costume is changed thrice a year and is an important ritual that can be performed by the King only.
