Very nice Buddhist temple with beautiful Buddhist statues. Not too much of a walk from the Grand Palace and right next to the Giant swing

This will be a 3-4 rating when construction is done. Right now it's not great. But, there's a really cool amulet market in the back; I liked that part.

This is a good Thai Temple in Bangkok. It is very different but well worth the trip. I enjoyed it. I liked the architecture as it so different what you usually see in Thailand. I was impressed with the Reception building that was open but very nicely decorated. The outside appearance of the Temple is quite different but special.

Among all my visits in Bangkok it was perhaps not the most 'spectacular' but for share the most exceptional experience. While just walking on the top floors I fled so relax and zen... I recommend everybody to try it .In hectic Bangkok you feel totally relax !!!Strange but happy feeling ! I can not forget about this lovely place .... More

Great architecture, surroundings, but as it was getting later in the morning temperatures need to be considered but despite the heat we still enjoyed this. It can get very crowded but it still has a calm peaceful ambience.

This temple was lovely but is was sooooo crowded! it was exciting to be there for the Crown Princess's birthday but it was difficult to see everything properly because of the vast number of people.

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.
