A temple worth visiting in the center of Bangkok (close to BTS Chit Lom). The surprise is the small forest middle in downtown Bangkok with beautiful statues. Often on Sunday people are bringing food wich is freely distributed. You also can request to stay there and sleep for 2,3 or 7 days.

The patron of this... More

It locates in the center of Bangkok, next to Central world, Siam paragon shopping mall. In the center of the pagoda, there is the beautiful stone Buddha statue.

It sits between two large shopping malls and an untidy, trash littered car park that separates it from busy Ploenchit Road. The Buddhist , constructed in 1857by Rama IV in what were rice fields, the temple is well presented and attractive and worth seeing as it is only one of a few items that refelct local culture around..

My boyfriend and I went so we could see some of the local architecture and culture. We got in for free, and maybe because it isn't tourist season yet, there didn't seem to be anyone around? There were hardly any signs anywhere as to what we were allowed to see and what we weren't and it was quite a short... More

This is one of the famous temple in Bangkok and easily reach for tourist by BTS-Siam just a short walk way.
