Wat Phra Kaew

Wat-Phra-Kaew, also known as Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. It is in the same area as the Grand Palace.

The main building is the central phra ubosot, which houses the statue of the Emerald Buddha. The Emerald Buddha is 66cm tall, and is made out of a single piece of jade stone (which is known as "emerald" as in Thailand this refers to the colour and not the specific emerald stone).
