A decorative pagoda was seen between the pillars of Wat Phra Kaew

The entrance to the Grand Palace in Bangkok was already full of people. And the bad feeling was true, the palace was also filled with tourists. The first to buy a ticket and went into the Buddhist temple called Wat Phra Kaew. Of course, it was also crowded here. This temple was built beside the Grand Palace and is a temple for the Thai royal family's exclusive ceremonies. So I didn't see any Buddhist monks loitering in the temple grounds. There is no facility for monks to live in here. It is usually open to tourists, and on this day, I saw only tourists. This temple is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Bangkok.

The temple grounds, which had been filled with tourists, was very crowded. Especially group tourists were shouting here and there. It is difficult to feel the religious tranquility here. In fact, it is difficult to feel that this is a religious institution. Walking around, I even feel like I'm walking in a busy market or amusement park attraction. As I was wandering around, fighting against the crowds, I stopped and saw a long and narrow chedi stretching into the sky between the ornate pillars.
