The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.

Not so crowded when I visited the temple which was good :) The mural painting inside the main building is displaying the important Buddhist sites around Thailand. The marble used for the construction were from Italy. I also walked around the temple ground and found many things that are interesting to view. Like it

Out of all the temples we saw this one was by far our favorite! The architecture does not disapoint. It is a medium sized temple but there is so much to see and take in, you can easily spend a couple of hours here. shoulders and knees must be coverd. We went at 3pm and there was beraly anyone in the temple, which is nice because you can take lots of pictures with out people photo bombing them.

Visit after 5pm, the ground is still open to public except the hall

Tremendous amount of money spent to construct this temple and it shows the opulence. Few tourists ventured to this part of Bangkok unless couple with Parutsakawan Palace and Wat Samananam Borihan (Wat Yuan Saphan Khao) or walking along the Krung Phadung Kasem or Luk Luang Road

The Khlong Phadung Kasem Electric Boat ferry is all wrapped up. The service had been suspended till further notice

Most tourists don't come here. They tend to stick with the main tourist attractions. I cannot recommend this enough. Stunning and well kept. So peaceful. We had the place nearly to ourselves except one other family. We have a Thai friend and he took us. Otherwise would not have known about it! Stunning. Really well kept. Amazing architecture. Highly recommend.

Nice small temple a little out of the center. It is not a must do when in Bangkok but I had time and it was near my accomodation. Entrance fee is 50 baht. Nice little river with fountains.

This particular Marble Temple is quite beautiful and a nice place to visit if you are in Bangkok. The design is quite typical Thai and the art-work is really exquisite.

Wat Benchamabophit also known as the marble temple is a temple which is for sure worth a visit. Because it‘s a little outside from the more famous one and lays also near the skytrain you need a taxi or a tuk tuk for visiting. it’s not a big temple and and has not so many visitors like others. It’s mostly built of italian marble and it‘s so different from the others temple in Bangkok. I had unfortunately cloudy weather and it still looks great, but with sunshine i‘m sure the temple would look just more nice!!
