Bangkok, Thailand

The Royal Palace's Temple of the Emerald Buddha encompasses Phra Sri Rattana Chedi.  Chedis are built to house relics of the Buddha.  They are more commonly known as stupas.  Siam's palace precinct and temple precinct were one.  And, during the 'age of empire,' Siam's palace took a back seat to no other royal court on earth.  Siam is now Thailand.  [2011]
