About The Grand Palace in Bangkok

Thailand’s most popular tourist attraction is the Grand Palace, with 8 million visitors per year. The Grand Palace was once the home of the King of Thailand, it lies majestically beside the Chao Phraya River and contains Thailand’s most sacred temple, Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The Palace is open to visitors every day from 8:30am until 3:30pm and there is an admission fee of 400 THB.

Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)

The Emerald Buddha is Thailand’s most sacred religious icon; it is actually made of jade and is only 45cm high. In the last 600 years it has graced many temples but moved to its present location in 1784, the first historical recording was in1434 when the King of Cambodia presented it to the King of Ayutthaya. The statue now sits on a gold altar in its own dedicated temple in the Grand Palace complex. The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is a beautiful ornate, encrusted building with three main doors but only the King and Queen can use the centre door. The statue has a long history of being stolen and hidden then reappearing over the centuries.

Wat Pho & Reclining Buddha

Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok and contains the enormous gold embossed Reclining Buddha. The measurements of the statue are 15 meters high by 46 meters long. King Rama III commissioned the Buddha in 1832. Wat Pho is also the home of the famous and renowned school of traditional Thai massage.

Wat Traimit (Temple of the Golden Buddha)

The story goes that when the Burmese were about to sack the city, the statue was covered with plaster to hide its value. Two centuries later, it was still in plaster and thought to be worthless. However, in 1957, when the statue moved to a new temple in Bangkok, it fell from its transport and was left on the ground by the workers. The next day, a temple monk, who had had a vision, was looking at the statue and noticed a glint of gold through a crack in the plaster, when examined it was made of pure solid gold. This beautiful Buddha statue is about 900 years old, is nearly 10 feet (3 metres) high and weighs over 5 tons.
