Postcard from Thailand

Postcard sent by Jobbo (Thailand). It is not so usual that I receive mail from that country! I love the picture. It shows the Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, also known as the marble temple. Construction of the temple began in 1899 at the request of King Chulalongkorn after building his palace nearby. Actually, the temple's name literally means The Temple of the fifth King located nearby Dusit Palace. It was designed by Prince Naris, a half-brother of the king.

Take a look at the stamps:
