Photographer's Note

Phra si Rattana Chedi, in the Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) complex in the Grand Palace, Bangkok.

Phra Si Rattana Chedi was built in 1855 by King Rama IV. It contains relics of the Buddha and is regarded as the most sacred of all the stupa in the Grand Palace. Apparently the outer surface of the building is covered in golden tiles made in Italy.

I chose to photograph this beautiful building in a symmetrical composition, as the ideas of balance and calm are central to Buddhist theology.
