Incredible and inspiring

I didn't think that the visit to Loha Prasat would have made such a tremendous impression. A 20Thb entrance donation allowed my guilt free passage through the inner sanctum of these venerable structure.
With 6 levels to explore and take pictures in.. not to mention the grounds of the entire Wat.. made a very impressive outing overall.
Worth a visit if you have the time.

Stunning Iron Monastery
Dec 2019
We walked here from the Golden Mount late one afternoon and was shocked but happy. There was only a hand full of people walking the grounds. This place has beautiful architecture, amazing bright colours with stunning views over Bangkok from the top floor. We did it on our own. It cost 20BAHT a person to enter and was worth every penny. You must dress respectfully, knees and shoulders must be covered.

Loha Prasat means iron monastery or castle. It has five towers, the outer, middle and the center towers. It is 118 ft high and consists of 3 level multi- tiered structure and has 37 golden spires. There were lots of Monk's around who were all very friendly. The grounds are well maintained and very large. We had about an hour there because it closes at 5pm. So we were a bit rushed.

Skip the Golden Mount for this instead!

If you’re around the area definitely ascend Loha Prasat for a stunning 360 view of Bangkok - most visit the Golden Mount and have to pay an entrance fee but here it’s just 20 cents by donation.

A must-see

Free from the pulsating crowds that gather by Wat Arun and The Grand Palace, yet just as exquisite and well worth your time. Combine it with the nearby and equally underappreciated Golden Mount for a great morning or afternoon in Bangkok!

Amazing Architecture and Coffee
Dec 2019
The entire complex is full of interesting architecture. You can go here in the mornings as well as in the evenings. The gardens are expansive and are well maintained. The star of the compound will indeed be Loha Prasat. Very unique and very interesting. You'll get to learn a lot about Bangkok's history. Not too many people visit here so you can take your time and enjoy things at your own pace. This is also a good place to take pictures with Thai temples without having too many people in the background.

Very interesting.
Dec 2019
We went by in the evening and heard a song or prayer so we came closer, there was a monk who gestured for us to get in and we did and listened. The rest of the temple was closed only the vihan, where the ceremony or praying took place was opened, but the whole complex looked really beautiful and it was very interesting and amazing to experience the prayer.
