Fodor's Review

Built in 1899, this wat is a favorite with photographers because of its open spaces and light, shining marble. Statues of the Buddha line the courtyard, and the magnificent interior has crossbeams of lacquer and gold. But Wat Benjamabophit is more than a splendid temple—the monastery is a seat of learning that appeals to Buddhist monks with intellectual yearnings.

Western marble meets Buddha's colonnade

Amazing fusion of western architecture with traditional Wat embellishments. The statues of Buddha inside are a must to see.
