Bangkok Temple - Wat In

Wat In - BuddhaLast Weekend I traveled around Bangkok showing a friend the showing him the interesting sights to see around the Grand Palace area in Bangkok. We found Wat In (or Wat Intraviharn). This was the first time for me. Wat In has a 32 meter high Buddha image which is decorated with glass mosaics with gold backing. This temple is also the caretaker to an impressive amount of valuable amulets, of great interest and collected by the Thai people. The temple it self has some impressive art on the walls of the temple, some of which are shown below:
