"Simply Elegant" Wat Benchamabophit - Marble Temple Tip by travelpug

  Front view of the temple
by travelpug

I found that this temple which is made of marble looks gorgeous. It looks classy and clean. The buddha statue is a replica of the famous buddha statue in Phitsanulok. It looks very beautiful in front of a blue back wall. An interesting feature of Wat Becham is the stained glass windows which are very western influenced.

Tips: Plan your visit to Wat Becham the same day as Vinmanmek Palace as they are located near to each other.
