Another great place. Easy to get around both on the grounds and inside. There are a few steps to get up into the temple but not strenuous. Inside has that serene feeling and many beautiful sights. The Buddha - of course- but the architecture and touches of decoration are also alluring. There is a small foot traffic problem because you... More

Inside of this there's a big golden statue of Lord Buddha, as the Buddhism divides into two Nikayas, this is a place which follows Mahayana Buddhism. and also can explore the religious culture of Thailand.

Visited in July with a family of 2 adults and 2 teens. Interesting and quite beautiful Wat. Since it is bit out of the way, it can be combined with a visit to the teakwood mansion which is in the same general area.

Not crowded and beautiful. Entrance fee is 20 baht. The best picture can be taken inside, and not from the front. It's not far from the throne hall, so when you are at the temple, it's in walkingdistance to visit the thronehall.

Very interesting. We prayed before Him. We went there when whole country was mourning on the demise of their lovely King. There was no entrance fee. Despite warning and well displayed and published Bill Board, western women visited with scantly clothes with scant respect to the way of life and culture as if they were on the way to some... More

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood Profile
Dusit
When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city. The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and the serenity here is in stark contrast with the chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.
