Wat Suthat is a royal temple which means that it was built by the King(s). There are only 10 such temples in Bangkok.The temple contains various Buddha images. My highlight were the Chinese pagodes symbolising the 28 Buddhas born on this earth.

Lucky to find the Wat Surthat, we hired a Tuk Tuk driver to take us around - he stopped us here and suggested we see this Wat - good advice - it was beautiful and off the beaten tourist track. very peaceful and quite.

I highly recommend this place! before you go, find out what day you were born on. There is a different Buddha for you to pray to, that goes by what day you were born.

In Bangkok you may see original and memorable temples - Pho Wat, Golden Mount, and the big white spire behind the river (I do not recall the name now) come to mind. This is not one of them. There is nothing in this temple making...More
