Photographer's Note

I spotted this beautiful temple while on my way to the palace in Bangkok. This is Wat Benchamabophit popularly known as Marble Temple. I was with a Thai friend that time and told me that this place is always filled with tourist so i'm lucky enough to see only few of them.

The construction of the temple began in 1899 toward the end of King Rama V's reign. Is is called "Marble Temple" because the walls are covered with marble brought from Italy. The yellow roof tiles are Chinese and has stained-glass windows as well as massive marble (guardian lions), flanking the doors.
