Owner description: Often referred to as the “marble temple” in guidebooks, this architectural gem features a magnificent Buddha image, which is a copy of the highly revered Phra Buddhajinaraja, and a beautiful beamed ceiling in a dark red and gold.

Pleased to visit this temple. Silent place so that can worship. I feel these religious places are for worshiping. Tourists are welcome, but they cant comment about the beauty or the comfort!. I was told the temple is made out of marble but not the Buddha statue. Liked the Thai architecture.

The Marble Temple is next to Wat Arun Golden Mount and one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok. It is built entirely of marble and gives a rich visual expression. Also, the nature around is calm, a small river with bridge and fish, great......

After so many temples kind of boring, because is like becoming immune to thai architecture, and start looking for some more extravaganza on them.

Anyway a good change.

The temple made from marble. Liked the environment, quite, calm and relaxed. Not too crowded here, take a seat at the bench around and enjoy the environment

I must say that I'm not an expert in arts ans temples. Many temples seem to be the same. I hope not to hurt anyone.
We decided to visit this temple because was on our road (we were walking to see the true city). Once out I was the same.
