Temple of the Emerald Buddha

Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand

"This statue stands guard outside Thailand's most sacred site. The official name of
Bangkok is actually Krungthep Mahanakorn Boworn Rattanakosin Mahintharayuttha Mahadilokpop
Noparatratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniveymahasathan Amornpiman Avatransathit
Sakkathattiay-avisnukarmprasit, which translates roughly to 'Great city of angels; the
repository of divine gems; the great land unconquerable; the grand and prominent realm;
the royal and delightful capital full of nine noble gems; the highest royal dwelling and
grand palace; the divine shelter and living place of reincarnated spirits.'

"But a plain 'Bangkok' will work as well..." --Göran

Danke für's phoonen, Göran (und für die Foto-Idee).
