Chao Phraya Pagoda

The 8-story tall pagoda along the bank of Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Pagodas originated in Nepal, and its forerunners were called a stupa, a place where sacred relics were kept. Today pagodas refer to a tiered tower with multiple eaves, common in mainland Asia [1].
