The Temple viewed from a large lawn just
before entering the gate to the Grand Palace.

Wat Phra Kaeo is one of the world's great sights.
It serves as the royal chapel and no monks live there.
Wat Phra Kaeo was built in 1782 or 226 years ago.

The Emerald Buddha sits atop an 11-meter tall gilded
altar, protected by a nine-tiered umbrella.
