The Wat Phra Kaeo official name is Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram. The temple is located in the historic centre of the Bangkok. The district is named Phra Nakhon on Rattanakosin on the royal palace ground. The temple is considered to be Thailand’s holiest shrine.

The build of the temple started in 1785 by king Rama 1. the capital of Siam moved from thonburi to Bangkok. No monks live in this temple as do in other temples. The temple of the Emerald Buddha is built along the same lines as the grand chapels from the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya eras.

The emerald Buddha image is 66cm tall, is made from jade and housed inside the temple. The image sits on top of a gilded ornate altar inside the royal chapel.

The image is usually dressed in different costumes based on the season. The image is dressed in jewels and a crown in the hot season, a golden shawl in winter and a gilt robe and headdress in the rainy season. Each time the costume of the emerald Buddha is changed the king presides over the ceremony.

The doors of the chapel have mother of pearl inlays showing scenes from the hindu epic Ramayana.

Inside the chapel the walls show murals of the Buddha’s teaching and scenes from the jataka tales about Buddha’s life.

When you visit the emerald Buddha you feel how important this statue is to Thailand. The Thai believe that when something happens to the emerald Buddha it is the end of Thailand. I must say I was very impressed. In my travels to Thailand I have seen many nice things and felt the warmth of the Thai people. I visited many temples. The one thing that impressed me the most is service of my local travel agent and my visit to the golden palace and the emerald Buddha. Your pictures will be of postcard quality. In fact I do not buy postcards, I print my picture and send them.
