This temple is located between CentralWorld & Siam Paragon, and there are lesser crowd here, mostly locals who come here to pray. There are two halls with beautiful Buddha statues inside to pray. Plus it's quiet as well which is so peaceful.

This is a great attraction and a must see. However, be prepared for a lot of tourist. This slightly ruined the occasion as the heat and the overwhelming number of people in the temple ground. Must: Cover your shoulders and legs (men and women) Don’t...More

This is a 30 minute stop tops. It's a nice temple, but it's more of an "everyday" place -- not a tourist stop like the reclining, gold, or jade Buddhas.

The Wat is close by to MBK. Worth the walk and a diversion if you are hunting for a deal in the shopping center. Gorgeous grounds with greenery surrounded by the steel and cement of downtown. The structures are in good condition and it is...More

Not all that far a walk from the more well known Wat Traimit, this free temple is really quite unique. The worship halls are massive, with vast prayer halls and huge ceilings. The central buddhas are very impressive, but dwarfed by their surrounds. In the...More

This is a beautiful temple located between two shopping malls in the heart of the city's shopping district. Peaceful with chanting monks, it provides an oasis for peaceful contemplation.
