Buddhist temples in Thailand are a journey to amazing places

Thailand is a fairy tale country with endless beaches, a warm sea, and also with a rich culture. Buddhism permeates her whole life.

The basis of Thai Buddhism is the ความเชื่อ in causality and the laws of karma. Everything we have now is the fruit of our past thoughts and actions, even from previous incarnations. And what we are doing at the moment will have consequences in the future.

When visiting a place of worship, it is advisable to know the customs in Thailand and to keep in mind certain rules of conduct to avoid uncomfortable situations, especially those that may be offensive. You definitely need not to violate the following rules.

Firstly, your shoulders, stomach and knees should be covered with clothing. Secondly, you are not allowed to talk loudly, laugh, as in all other shrines. Thirdly, it is necessary to enter the temple barefoot.

Wat Phra Kaew

The Grand Royal Palace is the holiest temple in Thailand and the most spectacular place in the entire city.

The most important place inside this palace is the Wat Phra Kaew temple, which houses inside the Emerald Buddha, carved in jade and only 45 centimeters high, is the most revered in Thailand.

Wat Arun

Wat Arun or Temple of Dawn, is one of the most emblematic symbols of the city. This majestic temple is decorated with ceramic tiles and Chinese porcelain pieces that make it different from other temples that you can visit in the city. It stands out for its central tower or prang of Khmer style and 80 meters high, the highest in Thailand, a viewpoint that offers beautiful views of the city guarded by four other smaller towers.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

This most sacred and revered place of worship in the north of the country. Its spectacular gold-plated chedi is accessed by a staircase of 309 steps flanked by nagas, or by a small funicular, offering a great view of the city. This temple hosts the most important religious celebrations in northern Thailand.
