About the Temple of the Emerald

The Wat Phra Kaew, also known as “the temple of the Emerald
Buddha” located within the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok
is Thailand’s most sacred temple and an important pilgrimage site
for Thai Buddhists.

The temple enshrines Thailand’s most highly revered Buddha
image, the Emerald Buddha. The image is housed in the ubosot
(ordination hall), a very ornate building constructed during the
second half of the 18th century after King Rama I had established
Bangkok as the new capital of Siam. The walls of the Rattanakosin
style building are adorned with murals.
