    Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram is a Buddhist temple in the Dusit district of Bangkok, Thailand.

    Also known as the marble temple, it is one of Bangkok's best-known temples and a major tourist attraction.

    It typifies Bangkok's ornate style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and elaborate finials
