Wonderful walking amongst the ancient ruins and trying to imagine how life would have been centuries ago. Very similar to the historic ruins found in Sri Lanka

I actually loved this place. It was quite and hardly no one else was there but a lovely lady mopping up the slippery floors. It was a great place to learn about Buddhism with a collection of quotes and definitions all around the complex and instructions for mediation. The actual building isn't that impressive, but it was a pleasant visit.... More

I went to see Loha Prasat although it is apparently not as popular as the other tourist attractions. But I loved it! You might not realise by looking at the roof but it is made of metal. That is why it is called the Metal Castle (Loha Prasat). The black colour of the roof contrasted against the white walls and... More

It's located next to Royal pavillion. In the park area, it's a good place to take picture. Temple itself has dark colored roof looking made of steel. Some different feeling from others. We could see monks inside.

I went here on an auspicious Buddhist day and did the prayers followed by walking around the temple three times. The place was packed with worshipped on this special day in the Buddhist calendar. The temple itself is like a little oasis just of busy roads. It's not overly large but has a nice pool or pond area that is... More

Loha Prasat (Brazen Palace) is a genuinely unique building found within the Wat Ratchanatdaram temple grounds at Ratchadamnoen Road in Bangkok. We very much enjoyed seeing Loha Prasat and would gladly return to this particular attraction during future trips. Here you will find a 36 metre high building, which features 37 delicately carved and decorated metal spires, each signifying one... More
