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!

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.

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 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.
