Pronounced it as Wat Ratchanada without the daram...Just directly opposite to Wat Saket....huge spacious,beautifully landscaped...more of a village resort by itself founded by Rama 3 as you bypass watching him sitting at entrance garden over looking the city gate where the old Bangkok was founded when they first arrived by the Chao Phya River. Check out the Loha Prasat the... More

Out of the city center, you will find that nice and relaxing temple. The best thing is that the area is not really busy and you can enjoy almost in your own that Thai temple.

Passed by and had a walk inside the temple. It's clean and also nice structure of the building. Should do this earlier so you get to go inside the building to see the drawings.

The best solution for people seeking not only the temple in Bangkok. It is located on the road-at rammbati Rd, on the main street, next to a school where you can also visit and worth it. Completely replaces the Grand Palace

Look this one up, and be thrilled with the decor, and detail! It's in an area that is also fascinating to walk! Hardly anyone was around when I was there in the afternoon, and cameras are allowed...

Yet another beautiful Wat in Bangkok. This one's a lot in the open as compared to other temples that tend to be secluded. Should be worth one picture and then you're off.

The first Loha Prasat built in India and the second in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka are in ruins. This third one here is the only one restored. Intriguing structure. You can climb up to have a nice view of the surroundings. Donation of THB 20 for entrance.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
