Wat Ratchabophit was constructed during the reign of
King Rama V (1868-1910  A.D.). The layout of the temple
is very well-designed. An outstanding architecture is the
circular-shaped colonades at the base of the Great
Pagoda.

Interior of Ubosot is
well-decorated and
the ceiling was created
with pointed arches
and ribbed vaults
similar to Gothic
architectural elements.
It expresses a good
combination of Thai
and Western interior
designs.
