This historic temple was built by the King Rama V in 1869, according to the royal tradition that each monarch must have his own temple of his reign. Wat Ratchabophit features a harmony of traditional Thai architecture and Western-style interior, which is probably the only of its kind in Thailand. The temple is also home to the Royal Cemetery where the ashes of high-level members of Thai royal family, most closely related to King Rama V, are contained.
Opening hours: Daily 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
