I was absolutely disgusted that they charge people to see this temple! Temple visits should be free. I didnt bother going in because every other temple my wife and I had visited were free. I think its disgusting.

It's a lovely temple and the detailing around the grounds is great if you're a photographer. Definitely in the top 10 sights in Bangkok.

Breathtakingly beautiful place with a genuine sense of history and passion, a must see if you are in Bangkok! Worth noting that you need to have your full legs and shoulders covered, but they loan you clothes for free if you need them.

I almost missed this amazing experience! What I didn't know is that Behring the temple is a Chinese Herbologist shop. Shake out 3 sticks, take them to the counter and get the herbs you need for your health! I won't miss that next time!
