ordinationhall Snap de la semaine: Ordination Hall, Bangkok

The ordination hall on the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok. Built between 1783 and 1785, it is just one of the many temples within the Grand Palace complex.

Kathryn and Daniel will post a ‘Snap de la semaine’ irregulary, but at a rate of one per week. It is an original photo not otherwise on the site—it might be fresh from our camera, a new scan of some old film, a product of our fooling around with Photoshop, or a file from the archive that we haven’t posted yet.
