Wat Bovonniwet

 

The statue of Rama IV in a niche at the base of the golden chedi at Wat Bovonniwet.  This was the temple where King Rama IV was an abbot  prior to his coronation as King.  His great grandson, the present King Bhumibol Adulyadej, resided at this temple while he was a monk.  His son, the Crown Prince and several of his grandsons, also resided here while they were ordained.
