AV Trip Photo – THE Emerald Buddha – Wat Phra Kaew – Bangkok, ThailandWat Phra Kaew or Temple of the Emerald Buddha has always been mysteriously named for me and I am sure for others as well. When you go to this site, you might even miss the actual Emerald Buddha! The site itself is fairly large and has enough beautiful detail to fill an art gallery, enough wondrous architecture to write a book about, and as many statues as you would need to wage war against the Terra Cotta warriors. All of this and no mention of the Emerald Buddha.
Well, today I wanted to share the actual Emerald Buddha with you. He is incredible and also incredibly hard to take a photo of. Photography is not allowed inside the temple itself, but if you are patient you can snap off a pretty decent picture of him from outside!
