Very interesting place for these people who are 'historical stone' lovers. Must see in Bangkok if you did already your visit to Wat Arun and Great Palace.

The Loha Prasat is designed and built to be different from all the rest. Built on a style from a Sri Lankan temple, it is designed as a meditation centre. The black roofs are in stark contrast to the ornately decorated ones at the other temples. Take a walk through and read the notices.

I like this temple. Very different from those other in Bangkok. You are allow to go inside without shoes. There is box in the entrance for donation. You can go upstairs.

With its iron decorations it's not like anything else you will see. Now being renovated it's quiet and I only met 3 other tourists during my visit. You can explore indoors in the cool, with marvellous views of buddhas seated all around the building at the end of corridors and in corners. It's well worth viewing the golden buddha in... More

The only one of its kind left, stunningly old and beautiful. It's a must visit temple right in central Bangkok and not far from Kaosan road, so no excuse, not to.

Unique and interesting building. Quiet place for praying, roof and walls are made from gold, the place has athmosphere. I went there with friends, I highly recommend this place.

Wat Ratchanatdaram was our favorite temple in Bangkok. Even though the top 2 floors are still under renovation, the first three floors are a great place to visit and relax. The temple next to the main building also holds a large Buddha statue and nice paintings. The design of the Wat is quite unique - it is akin to a... More

We arrived at around 12noon on 26 Mar and have the temple all by ourselves. Free admission. Unfortunately the top 2 floors are under renovation so we could not walk all the way up for a better view of the city. We can only walk to the first 2 floors to see dozen small Buddha statues. However, the temple itself... More
