“Peace”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Another superb temple. I just loved the architecture and the Buddha statues along the walls. A perfect place to get some quiet time during the day and to see other people and understand their culture by evening when they gather to socialize or to listen to dhamma. On the inside you are able to see some gorgeous murals. This place feels like timeless and make you feel peaceful. Also the courtyard is a place that I wanted to stay more than an hour. I do recommend.

“Just another temple”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We pass by this temple on the way to Wat Pho it's nice but nothing special. If they hang something in the giant swimming this place is much more attractive for tourists.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We found the temple very interesting - beautiful, quiet, authentic, with hardly any tourists. A place you can wonder around, and think. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful, open at night”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

It is a beautiful temple, with great architecture and buddha statues all along the four walls. It is open in the evening and it is touching to see the locals gather here to listen to the dhamma or chanting after work.

“Tranquil amidst a Busy City”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

With one of the oldest Buddha images in Thailand and one of the largest temple complex in Bangkok, it is mostly neglected by locals except for religious holidays and new years. Despite the hot and humid weather guaranteed in Thailand, the main interior of the temple itself is quite cool with the occasional breeze through the large doors and windows.
