Shot at Wat Phra Kaeo, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand.
I moved to the crowdest place in the precinct of Wat Phra Kaeo. Many tourists were wriggling around the decorative architecture. It was the main hall of this Buddhist temple. Taking my shoes off, I entered the inside. The inside was also crowded as same as outside.
The main hall housed an emerald Buddha and it was the highlight in this temple. Everybody came here to see. Against the odds, the Buddha statue was smaller than I expected. Usually, the main Buddha statues are very large in Thailand. Yet this Buddha statue here was small. It was placed on the top of the base and it looked down the visitors as if it was an unreachable dream.
At first, the statue was small because it was made with emerald, a precious stone. Yet it was not true. This statue was made with Jade.
