The majestic temple of Wat Benchamabophit, made of marble, is considered to be a work of art.
The Marble Temple, Bangkok
The history of Thailand, Buddhist shrines, architectural fancies – you can learn all about these things during a visit to the Marble Temple in Bangkok (Wat Benchamabophit). This building, built of marble, was erected in the early twentieth century, and now it looks different from most other Thai temples.

Nice cool marble creates excellent conditions for a contemplative admiration of the stunning architecture of the temple, its stone carvings, and frescoes depicting scenes of Buddhist life.
