Wat Phra Kaeo

This royal chapel, situated in the country's capital (Bangkok), houses the most sacred temple in Thailand, the Temple of Emerald Buddha.

There are a number of structures that surround this area that are of extraordinary beauty.

Emerald Buddha.

A large part of the temple walls are painted with the history of the country. The detail of the paintings are incredible.

We had the opportunity to attend the rehabilitation of these paintings and realize the work they did.

It is the only chapel where Thai monks do not live, but they are out there :)
