Mya Pagoda in ThailandThe Mya Pagoda in Thailand
The Phra Kaew or the Emerald Buddha sanctuary (officially known as Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram) is considered the most important buddhistic sanctuary in Thailand. Phra Putta Maha Mani Ratana Patimakorn (Emerald Buddha) is a Buddha picture in the meditative setting of the Lanna-Schule des Nordens, which dates from the G15.
High up on a number of decks, no one is permitted near the Emerald Buddha, except HM the Kings. An important rite, the change of garments is carried out only by the queen to make the land happy at any time of the year. Emerald Buddha's sanctuary is wonderfully adorned and has a great feeling of tranquility.
In contrast to other monasteries there are no rooms for religious, but only complex adorned sacred edifices, sculptures and palagodas. It is the headquarters of the Emerald Buddha'ubosot' (ordination hall). Further rides in Wat Phra Kaew are a mock-up of Angkor Wat, which was commissioned by King Ramah IV when Cambodia was under Thai con.
Later, at the instigation of King Rama V, the cast was reproduced in order to mark the first hundredth anniversary of the royal city. Don't miss the balcony, which is comparable to the walls of the temples. The entrance fee to the template is now 400 bahts! Keep in mind that the shrine will close early (15:30), so don't be too slow!
