Day 02 : Sightseeing Tour of Bangkok
After breakfast proceed sightseeing tour visiting famous Buddhists Temples.
Wats or temples are open to all visitors. It is worth remembering a few
things when visiting Wats. Disrespect towards Buddha images, temples or
monks is not taken seriously. Take off your shoes before entering a wat and
make sure you are appropriately attired.
Buddhist temples or wats are the primary tourist attractions of the city. At
times, there seems to be another temple around every corner. Today we will
be visiting the famous wats, also popularly known as the “Big Three” which
includes Wat Phra Kaeo, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) –Wat Phra Kaeo is regarded as
the most significant of all Thai Temples and the small green-jade statue of
the Buddha, high on its golden altar in the Chapel Royal, is the most sacred
Buddha image in Thailand. When the statue was first found in 1434, it was
covered in stucco. Today thousands of worshippers pay their respects in
front of the statue.
Pho – Wat Pho or Wat Phra Chetuphon is the oldest and largest Wat in
Bangkok, which was built in the 16th century during the Ayutthaya period and
then almost completely rebuilt in 1781 by King Rama I. It features the most
beautiful reclining Buddha and the largest collection of Buddha images in
Wat Arun – Wat Arun or the Temple of the Dawn is named after the Indian god
of dawn, Aruna. It is located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya river.
When king Tak Sin built his palace, he ordered the temple to be annexed to
it because it was the first place in Thonburi to catch the morning light.
The Emerald Buddha was once housed here. Even without the sacred statue, Wat
Arun continued to be much revered and the kings Rama II & III reconstructed
and enlarges it to its present height of 104 meters.
Day 03 : Sightseeing tour of Bangkok
Today we will be visiting some other important Wats including Wat Benchama
Bophit & the Dusit Palace.
Wat Benchama Bophit is made of white carrana marble, hence its tourist name
is Marble Temple. This most recent of royal Wats was built at the turn of
century under King Rama V. The largest Bot is a prime example of modern Thai
architecture. The courtyard behind the Bot exhibits 53 Buddha images,
representing famous images and styles from all over Asia, Thailand & other
Dusit Palace: From a single restored building in the 1980s, the Vimanmek
Mansion Museum has grown to include more than 20 restored structures of the
old Dusit Palace displaying everything from ancient artefacts of Thailand's
pre-history to contemporary photographs donated by His Majesty the King. Its
now become a large complex of museums where the buildings themselves form
part of the "collection" on display.
