The Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Thailand)

The Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha a.k.a Wat Phra Kaeo (Thailand)



Here is an essay in photos we got after trekking the vast area of the Grand Palace in Thailand from here up to there despite the heat of the Sun. Not captured were the important artifacts in the museum, like the king's robe made of gold thread. The antiquity of the Emerald Buddha (dressed in summer, rainy and winter season) is awesome. The grandeur of the Grand Palace is beyond words.
