Is this the best temple to go to? Looking to visit about two temples with friends!
You can do both the Grand Palace grounds which also has the temple with the Emerald Buddha (most special) and Wat Pho which has the Reclining Buddha and the Thai Massage School. Both are close and beautiful. Crowds at the Grand Palace grounds.
I would suggest the reclining Buddha would be better time spent.
I would recommend not missing the Temple of the Golden Buddha, amazing history behind its discovery.
The temple of the emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace are well worth the visit. Highly recommended
This temple and temple of reclining Buddha both r worth and beautiful to see.
Once in your life.
To see the Thai in the Rattanakosin dynasty. ( 235 years ago)
Don’t miss it.
You can see the temple and the palace.
How can they maintain these 2 valuable things?
It is the holiest of the Buddhist temples. The Buddha is only about 2 feet tall (small). It’s made of jade. Its very crowded and located on the grounds of the palace. If you’re going to Thailand why would you miss the holiest site and not take in the entire site? Just be prepared for the crowds.
