  • Wat Benchamabophit, or Wat Ben, is known as the marble tmeplo. He's not on the list of the famosões of Bangkok but was in my Find and cute hahahaha one evening, we were able to take nice pictures without a lot of people around. Its facade is quite large and impressive and to be able to fit it in a photo. The inner courtyard of the temple is the most beautiful and need to take the shoes to enter. There's no dress-code and admission is free! :)

  • Excellent place to visit. Peace full place to be and many types of Buddha you can see. The small bells sounds around the atrium feels some positive energy. The place is very well maintained. Made of full Italian marble. Never ever miss this place....
  • It's very nice temple with attractive structure built by marble which brought from Italy. It's good time to visit before 8am in the morning and between 4 to 5pm in the evening. There is no special parking lot for two wheelers. There is parking space for 4 wheelers in front of the temple at entrance. Two wheelers can be parked nearby to this parking space.
