THAILAND ~ Bangkok - Wat Benchamabophit ~

...Card nr 2 coming from Ravindra's holiday in Thailand...another wonderful view of one of the city's most beautiful temples...Thank you very much!!

Located on Si Ayutthaya Road, this unique marble temple was constructed during the reign of King Rama V. King Rama V ordered construction of the marble temple in 1899.

The temple is made of carrara marble imported from Italy. The entrance consists of four lovely marble pillars, and the temple's large courtyard is made of shiny white marble. On either side of the entrance is a large stone lion, guarding the temple.
