BANGKOK TEMPLES AND CITY TOUR (HALF DAY) – THIS IS A JOIN IN TOUR THAT MEANS THIS TOUR WILL BE SHARED WITH OTHER PEOPLE

TOUR DESCRIPTION. Bangkok’s temples are the Bangkok’s heart and soul. A visit here would not be complete without seeing its most beautiful temples. The architecture is awe-inspiring and the glittering decoration like no other: thousands of pieces of coloured glass and pottery adorned with intricate structures gilded in glaring gold. This was the concept of the ancient City of Angels (the meaning of the Thai name of Bangkok).

This is one of the most popular tours, and it gives guests a rich insight into Buddhism, architecture and the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Three of the capital’s most stunning temples are visited including: Wat Traimit, which houses the world’s largest solid gold Buddha (5.5 tons of precious metal!); Wat Benchamaborpit (the “Marble Temple”), which is a fascinating fusion of classical Thai architecture and 19th C Italian design and boasts marble and stained-glass windows; Wat Pho, which is the oldest temple in Bangkok and houses the Reclining Buddha, a 45 meter long statue which depicts Buddha entering Nirvana. Wat Pho is also ‘‘Thailand’s first university’’ and houses a wealth of art. It is s until an important center for traditional medicine, such as massage.

• Visit Wat Pho or Temple of the Reclining Buddha, founded in the 16th century, the oldest and biggest temple with the largest number of pagodas (95 in all) in the city. Wat Pho was the first open university of Thailand which offered courses in several branches of knowledge like literature, astrology, medicine and massage. It’s well known for its huge Reclining Buddha, 46 m. long and 15 m. high.
• Visit Wat Benchamabopit or Marble Temple, one of the most modern works of Thai religious architecture. Graceful and tranquil, it is famous for its main chapel built in white Carara Italian marble to house a replica of Thailand’s most beautiful Buddha image, Phra Phutthachinarat.
