Wat Phra Kaew

Wat Phra Kaew, or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in all of Thailand. This highly revered Buddha image was carved from a single block of jade, and is the starring attraction in Bangkok's Grand Palace. The Grand Palace's central Ordination hall, or 'ubosot', houses the Emerald Buddha for all visitors to see. The Emerald Buddha dons a seasonal cloak which is changed three times a year in correspondence with the season: hot season, mild season, and rainy season. The Buddha wears a diamond encrusted gold robe during the hot season, a solid gold robe in the mild season, and a gilded monk's robe in the rainy season. According to Thai legend, the Emerald Buddha was actually created in the year 43 BC by a saint in India. Saint Nagasena made the Buddha with the help of the Hindu god Vishnu.
