Phra Si Rattana Chedi And Phra Mondop

Phra Si Rattana Chedi and Phra Mondop
Shot at Wat Phra Kaeo, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand tetsuOzawa

The main color in the precinct of Wat Phra Kaeo was gold

Many impressive architectures were built in the precinct. This Wat Phra Kaeo is a Royal Buddhist temple and was lavishly produced. The main color used in these architectures is gold. And many tourists who came from the Chinese mainland were walking between the architectures. I heard Chinese voices all around. This temple could be contained in tourist routes.

The gold and Chinese people were a familiar combination. Many gold shops are doing business in every Chinese town in every country. I think it is one of the testaments the Chinese people don't place trust in the country. Therefore, they don't trust the money issued by their government. If by any chance, they flee with their worldly goods like gold.

The architectures in this photo were one of the architectures in Wat Phra Kaeo. The golden pagoda is Phra Si Ratana Chedi and the architecture on the right is Phra Mondop.
