Wat Phra Kaew, known in the West as Temple of the Emerald Buddha, ca. 1782. Built by king Rama I (Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke) after he moved the capital city from the left bank of Chao Phraya river in Thonburi and after the death of king Taksin the Great. The temple was built to commemorate the conquest of Vientiane, Laos and the return of the Emerald Buddha to the Thais. The temple design is an offshoot of traditional Ayutthaya architecture called Rattanakosin style

One of my favorite things about the Grand Palace in Bangkok were the The Dvarapala Yaksha; 16 foot tall demons that guard Wat Phra Kaew. They're insanely ornate and eye catching!
Just another example of how extraordinarily intricate everything about the Grand Palace is. 💚💛❤💙
