Bangkok, Thailand

I really love this night view of Bangkok...


It shows the famous -Wat Phra Kaew - temple, which is the only temple with no monks.
In English it would be Temple of the Holy Jewel Image or commonly known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
It is located on the ground of the Royal Palace in Bangkok and is the most revered Buddhist shrine in Thailand.
Central to the temple is the Emerald Buddha, a dark green statue standing about 2 feet tall. No one is allowed near the statue except the Thai King who conducts rituals at the temple throughout the year.
