Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple) Reviews
Een prachtige tempel, opgetrokken in witte marmer. Het hoofdgebouw mochten we niet betreden, vanwege een ceremonie, maar de bijgebouwen, de tuin en de galerij met heel wat verschillende Boeddhabeelden... more »A beautiful temple, built in white marble. The main building was not allowed to enter, because of a ceremony, but the outbuildings, the garden and the gallery with a lot of different Buddha statues are particularly beautiful.
Passing by this Wat quite often. It's a lovely place to visit. Sitting in the church , meditating will be so calm. Along sides are lot of Buddha Images , in gold color , in a long line , of four sides... more »
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.
