This main Ceylonese style chedi was built in 1855 and is located in the Outer Court of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The interior of the most sacred stupa is hollow as it contains a smaller stupa with Buddha relics and kind of remind me of the chedis at the Wat Phra Sri Sanphat royal monastery in the former capital...

This golden, bell-shaped stupa is stunning in its simplicity. Not until I returned to Florida did I learn of its significance. Properly spelled Phra Si Ratana Chedi (chedi is an alternative word for stupa, which is a dome-shaped structure that serves as a Buddhist shrine), this stupa recalls the monumental pagodas of the old capital in Ayutthaya. The chedi/stupa is... More

This golden Stupa ( in Sanskrit stup- a hemispheric structure containing relics- remains of Buddhist monks - a place for meditation) contain relics of the Lord Buddha. This Stupa has a circular base and a bell shape top. It was erected during the rein of King Rama iv in 1855.

This is part of the temple complex of the Grand Palace and the Temple of Emerald Buddha. This golden stupa is said to contain the ashes of the Buddha and is therefore an important place of worship for Buddhists.

This stupa is certainly the stand out structure at the Grand Palace. It stands so high and is so golden, you also need to cover your eyes as the sun shines on the brilliant gold paint. Simply beautiful! We took loads of photos and simply enjoyed seeing this structure. If you go to the Grand Palace, you can't miss it,... More

It's a nice big Stupa that you see when you are going to the entrance at the Grand Palace. It can look very beautiful in the sunset light

The Phra Siratani Chedi is one of many interesting things to see within the Grand Palace complex in Bangkok. This is a sizeable 19th century stupa that is Sri-Lankan in style and design, located on the Upper Terrace near the entrance to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It is believed that the ashes of the Lord Buddha are maintained... More
