buildings with “over 200 years royal history and
architectural experimentation” linked to it.
The main temple is regarded as the most sacred
Buddhist temple in Thailand. The main building is the
central ubosoth, which houses the statue of Emerald
Buddha. That is simply the Jadeite statue, but it is
adorned with sets of gold. There are three different
sets of gold clothing, which are changed by the King of

during the reign of King Rama. The epic stories formed
the basic information to draw the paintings during the
reign of King. These paintings are refurbished regularly.
The murals, in 178 scenes, starting with the north gate
of the temple illustrates the complete epic story of
Ramayana sequentially, in a clockwise direction covering
the entire compound wall. The murals serve to emphasise
human values of honesty, faith, and devotion.
