Wat Benchamabophit was built in 1899 by King Rama V and houses the Buddha image Phra Buddha Chinnarat, considered one of the most beautiful images in Thailand. The so-called Marble Temple is located on Sri Ayuttaya Rd, near the King’s official residence at Chitralada Palace. The marble temple got its name from the Carrara marble used in its construction, especially for the marble pillars.
The temple opens every day from 8 am to 5 pm.
