Beautiful temple with a surprisingly cool interior after the heat of the city. The architecture is unique.

There is a relic here, from the Buddha himself. Climb LOTS of stairs to get to it. It's under a golden dome. There is also an actual temple with a golden Buddha, very peaceful. Interesting visit

I really enjoyed the architecture and the location of this Wat. There are some cool features on the property and it is easy to get to. Make sure it's open when you go or you can only see the outside area.

This sacred Buddhist temple was built in 1846 by King Rama III for his niece. The name of the temple literally means Royal Niece. The temple is famous for its beautiful iron roof called Loha Prasat with its 37 metal spires which signify the 37 virtues needed to attain enlightenment. Under renovations but an enjoyable visit nonetheless.

The entire temple building is made of metal. It is located at the entry to the Rattanakosin area of Bangkok and all state guests are given the official welcome to Thailand/Bangkok there, with the temple as the backdrop.

Some interesting history on the ground floor but the view from the top is obstructed by scaffolding at the moment!
