The Emerald Buddha, a 66 cm tall jadeite idol, is the most sacred Buddha statue in Thailand. The idol wears three different dresses, which change with every season crown and jewelry in summer, a golden shawl in cold, and a robe plus head-dress when it is raining.
The exuberantly colored compound is the largest and most important temple in Thailand. Most striking feature of the temple is it's architecture. The most important building within the temple is the Bot, which translates as the 'house of meditation'. The Emerald Buddha resides within the Bot. The inner walls of the temple are covered by exquisite murals, which depict the Buddhist cosmology. The temple is encased by a covered gallery. Every entrance is flanked by huge demons called yakshas. Other highly appreciated structures within the temple are the ornate royal pavilion, the gilded chedi stupa, and the compact library.
