Right across the way from the Golden Mount and a good place to go to afterwards. The marble here is stunning and crossing the canal to examine the temple grounds is worth your time as well.

This temple complex is rather small and a bit off-site of the standard tourist program. While the main building is cased in fine marble, set up is traditional. If you have some extra time go there. But let the taxi driver wait for you, as is it some times a bit difficult to fish a new one later on. In... More

This temple is in their coin and to go there was so great since they play music while you visit, I even made a movie with their music. REALLY worth it.

The Marble Temple is one of many good stops in Bangkok. Several good photo ops along the water. Interesting architecture.

Less crowded than other temples, this temple offers you a visit at a more relaxed pace. I bought a cool drink and found a quiet place to read about local culture and religion while watching the world go by. The temple is located in a little well maintained parc. Definitely worth to visit

This is a very spectacular temple from the entrance. It's interesting because it features several bronze Buddhas sourced from elsewhere. Each of these depicts Buddha in a specific stance. Their gestures and expressions are fascinating to see. The grounds here are lovely.

We visited the Marble temple in the morning and there were hardly any crowd. It is very different from other main temples in Bangkok. The temple is very pretty, and the combination of white and gold makes it exceptional. The various Buddha images placed in the courtyard had brief description of the poses, their origins and meaning, which we found... More

The Marble Temple is a peaceful place with a large garden and bridges over a canal. We didn't come here intentionally. A tuk tuk driver brought us here but we liked the temple. You can spent at least one hour here without getting bored.

Many overlook this temple but it's beautiful! Monks are walking around in the court area...also eating lunch inside the temple area. But overall an experience to see day to day life. And not overly crowded!

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.
