  • Royal Grand Palace & Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew)
    Destination: Bangkok | Duration: 4 Hours
    Excursions Description
    The Grand Palace complex is a remarkable site that contains several magnificent buildings with a fusion of Thai,  Western, and Eastern architecture. Within the walls of the complex is Wat Phra Kaeo, or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.   The sacred Emerald Buddha is the most revered image of the Buddha in Thailand, and the temple has some of the finest examples of Thai sculpture, architecture, painting, and decorative craft in the country. 

    This palace has an area of 218,400 sq. metres and is surrounded by walls built in 1783.    The length of the four walls totals 1900 metres.    Within these walls are situated government offices and the Chapel Royal of the Emerald Buddha besides the royal residences.

    The Grand palace consists of several buildings of highly detail Thai style architecture combined with the style of the Italian Renaissance.

    The Royal Monastery of the Emerald Buddha

    The Emerald Buddha is in fact carved from a block of green jade and was first discovered in 1434 in a stupa in Chiang Rai.   At that time the image was covered with plaster and was thought to be an ordinary Buddha image.

    The Emerald Buddha is enshrined on a golden traditional Thai-style throne made of gilded-carved wood, know as a Busabok, in the ordination hall of the royal monastery.   The sacred image is clad with one of the three seasonal costumes (summer, rainy season, and winter).

    The Upper Terrace

    Four main monuments are found on this terrace: a reliquary in the shape of a golden chedi; the Mondop, a repository for Buddhist sacred scriptures inscribed on palm leaves, contained within a beautiful mother-of-pearl inlaid cabinet; a miniature Angkor Wat crafted by the order of King Mongkut(Rama IV); and the Royal Pantheon in which statues of past sovereigns of the ruling Chakri dynasty are enshrined.

    The Galleries

    The grounds of the Royal Monastery are enclosed by galleries, the walls of which are decorated with scenes from the Ramakien, first painted during the reign of King Rama I and since then restored several times.
