Exploring Wat Phra Kaeo

The Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaeo) is one of the must-see temples in Thailand. It's located in Sanam Luang, at the heart of Bangkok where the Thai government buildings are. I used to take friends visiting Thailand there but unfortunately the gates had already been closed. So we went there yesterday with Thai friends before its closing time at 3:30. These photos I took there will speak themselves of this great place.
