The Temple of Benchamabophit or marble temple, not far from the Palace or Dusit Zoo Winmamek is very pretty with its small pool and deck wrought iron red in the garden outside his court and not forgetting the beautiful seated Buddha that it houses the most photogenic. A place often quiet and relaxing because little or no visit by the groups. Note that the right is the building where the monks live.
