Wat Phra Kaew, generally referred to in English as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and formally as Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram, is viewed as the most hallowed Buddhist sanctuary in Thailand.
The Emerald Buddha housed in the sanctuary is an intense religio-political image and the palladium of Thailand. The sanctuary is in Phra Nakhon District, the notable focal point of Bangkok, inside the areas of the Grand Palace.
The fundamental structure is the focal phra ubosot that houses the statue of the Emerald Buddha. As indicated by legend, this Buddha picture started in India where the sage Nagasena forecasted that the Emerald Buddha would bring “success and pre-prominence to every nation in which it dwells”.
The Emerald Buddha idolized in the Wat Phra Kaew is subsequently profoundly worshipped and adored in Thailand as the defender of the nation.
Chronicled records date its finding to the fifteenth century in Chiang Rai where, after it was migrated various occasions, it was at long last brought to Thailand in the eighteenth century.
