The Wat Ratchabophit is a temple built in the reign of King Rama V in 1869. There is a large chedi housing a Lop Buri-style Buddha image. The temple exterior is Thai while the interiors are European. Many of the buildings within the temple have a Gothic feel. The doors, windows and internal beams are decorated with gold leaf and small mirrors.
