The Marble Temple [Wat Benchamabophit] is named after the white Carrara marble (from Italy) of which it is constructed. The name 'Wat Bechamabophit' means : the temple of the fifth king.
The inside walls of the compound are decorated with murals depicting the entire Ramakien,which is Thailand's national epic, derived from the Indian Ramayana epic. The demons wear shoes and the monkeys dont.

Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha [Wat Phra Kaew] This is Thailand's most important and sacred temple

  11. Their products always smell so fresh and lovely, I totally agree you can smell a Lush store from a block away! ;)

    I have never bought any of their products though, as I do not like having expiry dates on my products, it would stress me no end trying to finish it in the alloted time haha!

    I have heard lots of good things about Lush but have yet to try any of their product. Oh well, one of these days! I think I would like to get my hands on one of their face masks; but not the Cosmetic Warrior one as my skin tends to be a bit on the dry side.
