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

Beautiful temple in complete contrast to the Bangkok metropolis that surrounds it. Quiet and serene juxtaposed with the modern Siam Paragon and Central World malls nearby. Worth a visit if nearby. Unlike the more well known Wats in Bangkok, there were no other tourists when I was there but only a handful of locals who were praying. If you have... More
