The Library

The temple compound is renowned for the spectacular craftsmanship and the exquisite materials of the many structures that are found within it. The library was built at the behest of Rama I and was designed according to traditional Thai styles. The doors are made of Mother of Pearl.

Elephant Statues

One can find beautiful statues of elephants placed throughout the temple complex. The elephant is a sign of power and independence, and it is common for Thai parents to make their children walk around an elephant or elephant statue three times in hopes it will bring them strength.

Hermit Statue

This particular statue is believed to have healing properties, and many visitors offer their respects to the statue and give various offerings in the form of incense sticks, fruit and flowers.

Each of these towers is of a different colour and represents the eight aspects of Buddhism, which form the noble eightfold path. These structures were also built by Rama I and are spectacular, constantly attracting travellers staying in nearby accommodation such as Adelphi Forty-Nine, one of many providers of serviced apartments in Bangkok.
