Photo and description
Wat Bentyamabophit, one of the youngest royal monasteries in Bangkok, was established at the beginning of the 20th century. The complex received its second name - the Marble Temple - due to the fact that its walls are covered with gray Carrara marble. Italian architect Hercules Manfredi took part in its design.
The temple is decorated with amazing Victorian stained glass windows depicting scenes from Thai mythology. In the building where King Rama V lived during his temporary monasticism, murals depicting the events of the era of his reign have been preserved. In one of the halls, the ashes of Rama V. are kept.
In the courtyard of vata, bronze statues of Buddha are exhibited, including the famous Walking Buddha.
