The celebrated Emerald Buddha is housed in the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in the Grand Palace in Bangkok. When holidaying in Thailand, the Emerald Buddha should top your list of things to do in Bangkok. The statue dates back to the 14th century. Carved out of jasper, a semi-precious material, the serene Buddha is shown to be meditating in the lotus position. Around two and a half feet tall (26 inches), the Emerald Buddha is incredibly beautiful.
Visitors from all over the world looking for peace and serenity come to pay their respects to Buddha at Bangkok. The founder of Buddhism, the Buddha rose above life and death and everything that transpired in between. Son of Maya, the Buddha beckons you to think about what brings you peace. And what better place to begin the journey to peace than a holiday with people who matter the most. Afterall, the love and warmth of one’s family is what brings peace and joy to the soul.
When you stay at the resort at Bangkok, do make it a point to visit the Emerald Buddha. It could be quite an experience when you mingle with global tourists, who come here to pay their respects. This could also be the beginning of a great story telling session, in case your kids are seeing Buddha for the first time. Once they see the resplendent green statue, the hordes of tourists who come there, they are bound to be curious to know more about the Buddha. Such a magnificent opportunity to introduce the Buddha to your children.
