Description

Bangkok's main tourist attraction, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is considered the most sacred in the country. Elevated above the floor, the Buddha statue claims a lofty enough status that only the king is allowed to touch it. He changes its clothing three times a year, and the ceremony is widely viewed as necessary for the country's good fortunes. With all of the gold-plated guardian statues and opulence inside the temple, sometimes people are surprised that the statue is so small. Like everywhere else in Thailand, it's compulsory to remove your shoes before entering a temple and be sure to never point the soles of your feet towards an image of the Buddha.
