|At the front yard of Wat Benchamabophit|
Our agenda for the exclusive tour today was to visit one place before the hotel check out time. The record of previous day tour can be read here. The place we were heading to was Wat Benchamabophit. This temple was constructed in 1899 at the same time as the completion of Dusit Palace whose distance only a throw stone away from there. Many people consider Wat Benchamabophit as one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok and I think that's quite true. The beauty of the temple comes not only from the multiple layers of its roof, but also from its wall made of marble. That is the reason for the place to be also called The Marble Temple. The entrance fee to this religious attraction is 20 Baht. Coming in from the back gate, we had been wandering around for a while before paying. But, don't think to enter here without purchasing ticket because there is an inspection when about to enter the main hall.
