What Do I need to Know About the Temple of the Emerald Buddha?

English-speaking guides are on duty from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Temples are sacred spaces and need to be respected as such, so visitors cannot wear shorts, slippers, sandals, or revealing tops. Anyone wearing these garments is denied admission to the complex. The temple closes at 3:30 p.m., so make sure to arrive with time to spare.
