Wat Ratchabophit

Wat RatchabophitThis is Rama V’s state temple. Rama VII, however, renovated it and considered it his state temple as well. It has been labeled the “temple of fine penta-chrome” because all main structure in the monastery: the ordination hall, the image hall, the pagodas, the gallery, and the pavilions, are all decorated with fine five-color chinaware. The ordination hall, in particular, is in the Gothic style, believed to have emulated one royal hall in the Versaille in France . An image called Phra Angkhirot is placed on the base made from an Italian marble slab to contain the ashes of Ramas II, III, IV, V and VII.
