"Phra Si Rattana Chedi" Grand Palace Tip by leffe3

Grand Palace, Bangkok: 313 reviews and 618 photos


The most dominant structure, certainly seen from outside the walls, is the plain gold clad facade of this Chedi. Built in the 1850s by King Mongkut (Rama IV) to hold a piece of Buddha's breastbone, the golden tiles were added by is son, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). Its simplicity and plainess certainly makes it one of the most striking within the Wat. It is also one of the first you come across as you enter the site.
