one of the most visited spots in Bangkok is grand palace.It was the most beautiful temple complex we have ever seen.Its architectural details are amazing and has cultural importance.It is surrounded by Chao Phraya River, where we can take boat rides.This temple complex has innumerable Buddha statues.
From Grand palace we went to Wat Traimit (reclining Budda temple) where you see reclining Buddha that measures 150 feet (46 meters) in length. It is the largest in the city! It is covered with gold,huge and fascinating.
There are many Buddha temples in the same complex like Emerald Buddha where the complete statue is made from Jade stone. Wat Benchamabophit is place which is made out of marble imported from Italy.
