Temple of emerald Buddha is placed inside Grand Palace. You can see the place in the entry ticket of Grand Palace. The architecture of the temple is marvelous. Better to visit this place in the morning hour. i.e between 8-10 AM. Otherwise lot of tourist that you can not take a good snap inside the temple. Never to miss this place if you are in Bangkok.

You can see it once. This temple is located in side the grand palace. Your ticket to grand Palace includes this admission also.

You can see Buddha made of Emerald stones. If you took 'audio service' when you buy tickets, you can listen to the history behind this Emerald Buddha also.

The emerald Buddha is very small. The Buddha and the palace are definitely worth seeing but it is really crowded and hot. Probably best to go in the morning. You need to remove your shoes to see the Buddha and no photos inside.
