Bangkok City Temples

Bangkok is still a city of temples, and the whole place is resplendent with golden spires, orange-tiered roofs, saffron-robed monks, and serene Buddha images. 

From several magnificent temples in Bangkok, the three most unique ones are Wat Traimit, Wat Pho, and Wat Benchamabophit. The tour takes you through some of the most interesting parts of Bangkok, including stops at the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Po), the actual name of which is Wat Phra Jetupon, famous as the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, with its precincts covering 80,000 square meters in all; the Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Trimmit), the home of a 5.5 ton Buddha image, found when the port of Bangkok was being expanded and dating back more than 200 years; and the Marble Temple (Wat Benjamabophit), a royal temple begun by King Chulalongkorn in 1901 and noted for its dazzling, white Carrara marble.
