Outside of Wat Boworn (Chedi)

>> Saturday, July 4, 2009

I got this photo taken while I was visiting 9 temples in one day, it was a few months ago. I counted Wat Boworn as number 8th. It was in late afternoon, and we were so tired but still feel happy of doing this.

Wat Bowornniwet Vihara Rajaworavihara (Wat Boworn) is the first grade royal temple. This is one of the important temples in Bangkok. Wat Boworn is also the residence of members of royal family who enter monkhood i.e. King Rama Vl, Vll, lX.

The important sites in Wat Boworn are "Ubosot", a "Trimuk" (three facade), decorated with glazed ceramics, where the seal of the Royal Crown located at the centre, another are the principal Buddha image, the Vihara the Chedi and the Panya residence, a place where the kings and the princes have stayed during their ordain.
