Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram
is a Buddhist temple in the Dusit District of Bangkok, Thailand.
Also known as the marble temple, it is one of Bangkok's best-known temples and a major tourist attraction. The entrance is marked by four impressive marble pillars, and even the large courtyard is made of shiny white marble. The white marble and the golden decorated windows give a delightful appearance, especially in the sunlight.
On either side of the entrance is a large stone lion, guarding the temple.
Can’t wait to explore this beauty!♥️
Squeeze your way through the hordes of tourists that gather at Wat Benchamabophit’s marble structure. Here, you’ll find the sacred Bodhi Tree brought directly from India, which is believed to be the same tree where Buddha attained enlightenment.
Worshippers go to the grounds in the morning to receive donations such as incense, curry, rice, and other essentials; while tourists appreciate the temple’s stunning design.

Sensō-ji (金龍山浅草寺, Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji) is an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. It is Tokyo's oldest temple, and one of its most significant. Formerly associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, it became independent after World War II.
Adjacent to the temple is a five-story pagoda, the Asakusa Shinto shrine, as well as many shops with traditional goods in the Nakamise-dōri.
When we went there there’s a lot of people. If you have kids and still riding a stroller, they have a lift so you can enter the temple.
I will recommend this place.
Missing Thailand 🇹🇭— the food, the shopping and the temples
Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is right behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha – it’s a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok.
You should also try their streetfoods— pad thai and mango sticky rice. Don’t forget to ride a tuktuk
