The Emerald Buddha was transferred first once from Chiang Rai to Chang Mai during XVth century. It will live there one century of peace and boundless homages. Then a young prince brought the statue until Vientiane, the new capital of Laos. The Thai never accepted the abduction of their Buddha. When king Rama 1st seized Vientiane at the end of XVIIIth century, it brought back the statue. The Chakri dynasty will offer its more temple to it: Wat Phra Keo, in Bangkok.
