What Thai Buddhist temple was featured in the CBS reality show Amazing Race 9?

Posted on: November 15, 2008

Welcome back contestants. Marriott World of Rewards have given me a whole new reason to blog – Looking up answers and related information, but only when the answers are hard to find.

Today’s question is:

What Thai Buddhist Temple was featured in the CBS reality show Amazing Race 9?

And the answer is:

Marble Temple

(locally known as Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram)

Sideview - Marble Temple, Bangkok, Thailand

Sideview - Marble Temple, Bangkok, Thailand

It is one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok (Capital city of Thailand) and was constructed by the 5th king in 1899.

What does Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram mean? Wat means a religious school or temple and Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram means fifth King. Thus – Temple of the 5th King.

Made of Italian marble, with a built in Museum and shrines of the King and his wife, Marble temple is also one of the most popular attractions in Bangkok Thailand.

Amazing race 9 featured this temple in 2006 as the 10th elimination.

Hi, your blog is very nice – and helpful too. I learned a bit more about Thailand today. Thank you!

Your help is amazing!! I was wondering why the answers recently seemed to be worded the same!! Thank you!

Arjun,

You are doing grate job in providing the answers that most Marriott folks are coming to your site and using the services for self gain, win something vs. you are providing the answers through this site which is claimed as set-up for charity!!! I sure hope those Marriott contest winners, for finding their answer through your web sites will be also sharing their price with your charity. Keep up the good work

Good Day!,

Here is your answer for the Marriott question of the day.

The most well known attraction on St. Kitts is Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park. Designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO in October 2000. Built over a period of 104 years beginning in 1690, British authorities consider the fortress to be one of the finest examples of British military architecture in the world.

I got up early and did a bit of research. It was fun. Now I need to go back to my studies. I have a big test on Monday.
