Not confuse[edit]

His name is Dhosa Kiridhorn (ทศคีรีธร) he guarded an exit to grand palace on the south-western gate with Dhosa Kiriwan (ทศคีรีวัน) (his twins). Not confuse with Indrajit (อินทรชิต) the green demon who guarded the northeastern gate with Suriyabhop (สุริยาภพ) the difference is nose, Suriyabhop who similar to Dhosa Kiriwan also has no elephant nose too. th:Image:Litt_RMK_Dhosakiriwan_DhosakiriDhorn.jpg

Also of the mythological creatures which placed surround the Royal Pantheon (Thai:ปราสาทพระเทพบิดร Prasat Phra Thep Bidon) there are both male and female creatures, the Kinora (กินร) is male term of Kinaree (กินรี). ---- user:thanyakij | talk page -- 202.133.135.23 -- 13:19, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Purpose of building Wat Phra Kaew[edit]

I think this article talk about Emerald Buddha too much. But author forgot to talk about these issues

- Why King Ram I built Wat Pra Kaew on the ground of Grand Palace?

Normally, Buddhist temple or Wat will be located separately from houses. But King Rama I of Chakri Dynasty followed the tradition of former Kings in Ayudhaya period to build the royal temple located in Royal palace. (See Wat Phra Sri Sanphet (วัดพระศรีสรรเพชญ์) http://www.bangkoksite.com/AyutthayaPage/WatPhraSiSanphet.htm)

- No monks or priests live in Wat Pra Kaew. It is the only one temple in Thailand. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Toxiczero (talkcontribs) 02:36, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Wat Phra Kaew[edit]

This section is misspelt and should be Wat Phra Kaeo and some links in wikipedia use Wat Phra Kaeo correctly. Wat Phra Kaew is in Chiang Rai City. See http://gotour-thailand.com/chiang-rai/wat-phra-kaew. The Emerald Buddah was originally in Chiang Rai but moved to Bangkok in 1678. In 1990 Chiang Rai had their own Emerald Buddha sculptured and placed in Wat Phra Kaew. Made of jade and called the Jade Buddha of Chiang Rai. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.150.63.112 (talk) 11:14, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Need serious rewrite[edit]

It doesn't appear to be clear what is legend and what is history, and most of the history appears to be about the Buddha statue. It needs an overhaul. Hzh (talk) 12:24, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Anyway, I'll start the rewrite, there seem to be some wrong information in the article. Hzh (talk) 22:05, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
