Tour Description

  • Bangkok is called the City of Temples for no invalid reasons. The city is home to around 1000 extraordinary Buddhist temples which are a treat for any tourist.
  • The two most enigmatic and full of history temples are the Marble Temple & the Golden Buddha Temple. .
  • They are famous for not only the architecture or the ambience but also for the interesting history behind it. Construction of the Marble temple began in 1899 at the order of King Chulalongkorn (the King Rama V) after building his palace nearby. The temple's name literally means the temple of the fifth king. It has a grand display of carrera marble pillars a marble courtyard and two large marble Singhas or the lions guarding the entrance. It also gives a feel about the local culture.
  • The Golden Temple on the other hand is filled with ravishing history. The house of the most expensive idol in the world, this temple is a perfect reflection of Thai culture. In the ancient times to save this statue from the Burmese the then king wrapped it up with plaster and it was forgotten. Couple of centuries later while shifting the statue the plaster cracked revealing the precious golden idol inside. It is 5.5 ton solid gold being approximately evaluated worth $ 250,000,000.00 must click for any photographer.
  • The shrine is a peaceful space full of divinity.
  • The temple tour is suitable and advisable for all ages and people of every taste but it’s a treat for photographers as they can capture some eye catching sites in those cameras. Also this shrine is recommended those who are keen to dwell into the history as they will earn some valuable findings by the history and legends of this shrine.

All in all it a must visit for everyone who is in Bangkok. As said earlier your trip to Bangkok is incomplete without the Temple Tour..
