Marvelous Temple of The Emerald Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand
Wat Phra Kaew, or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, in Bangkok, Thailand is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in the country. 

This picture was taken inside the temple. Behind me is the temple's famous murals.

The Emerald Buddha is raised high on a series of high platforms, and no one is allowed near the highly-revered image. 

A seasonal cloak, which covers the Emerald Buddha image, is changed three times a year - summer, cool, and rainy season. The cloak is changed only by His Majesty the King of Thailand to bring good fortune to the country during each season. 

How to get there
Now, a very inexpensive and enjoyable way to get to Wat Phra Kaew is by taking the Skytrain to Saphan Taksin, then the river taxi to Tha Chang Pier.

What to wear
Short pants, or short skirts, and sleeveless shirts aren't allowed in the temple. You can rent a sarong at the entrance, but it's better to dress appropriately to avoid the queue!

Other information
The temple is open from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Price is 500 Baht.
