Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple) Reviews
We we lucky to visit The Marble Temple about 40 min before visiting hours end and we were almost alone there! Rare opportunity to see a temple in Bangkok without people. Beautiful place for... more »
So quiet - so few people - and a real beauty of a temple. Really enjoyed the visit to this one, which couldn't say about many of the 'bigger' temple attractions. 50 THB per person to enter. more »
Excellent place to visit. Peace full place to be and many types of Buddha you can see. The small bells sounds around the atrium feels some positive energy. The place is very well maintained. Made of full Italian marble. Never ever miss this place....
It's very nice temple with attractive structure built by marble which brought from Italy. It's good time to visit before 8am in the morning and between 4 to 5pm in the evening. There is no special parking lot for two wheelers. There is parking space for 4 wheelers in front of the temple at entrance. Two wheelers can be parked nearby to this parking space.
