"The White Temple and Monastery" Wat Benchamabophit - Marble Temple Tip by thedouglas
Wat Benchamabophit - Marble Temple, Bangkok: 48 reviews and 112 photos
The white marble temple is a bit different to most of the others in Bangkok - and there are more than 50 Buddha images here, if you are interested in style and poses. We particularly enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk around the monastery, although we felt like intruders, and tried to be as discrete as possible - AS IF! Gawking, photographing and all the while, trying to observe etiquette and not look at the monks directly etc. We saw many young children who were already in training as monks here, and the school was relatively accessible.
