Wat Phra Kaeo

Wat Phra Keo

Wat Phra Kaeo or with it's full name Wat Phrasrirattana Sassadaram is the Royal Temple in the Grand Palace. As foreigners we have to pay for the entrance unlike at other temples. A strict dress code is also enforced here and visitors with shorts will not be allowed to enter the grounds. We have been back to this temple many times since it is always a special place to visit. Wat Phra Kaeo is the sacred symbol of the Rattanakosin Dynasty.

Prasat Phra Thep Bidorn

The Prasat Phra Thep Bidorn, the Royal Pantheon, which is the most important one on the upper terrace. It offers a number of details, which are worth to be looked at while visiting the Royal Palace, namely the pediments on its sides, which bear the emblems and insignias of the kings. It houses the statues of five of the Chakri kings.
