Bangkok's Wat Benchamabophit (Wat Ben)

Wat Benchamabophit
Wat Ben 
Wat Benchamabophit or "Wat Ben" is also called "the Marble Temple" due to the gleaming white marble of which the temple is built.  Wat Ben is considered a Royal Temple of the First Class and is also a Royal Temple of the Chakri Dynasty dedicated to King Rama V.

I was lucky enough to be visiting the temple during a monk ordination and you can see some of the ceremony in my photo set below.
