Temple + well tour organized place. Good culture and religion temptation. Very fantastic large GOLDEN Buddha. Stay in Yaowarad road, the main Chinatown of Thailand. Easy to find. Good transporation by MRT and Hualamphong train station. Beware of on road traffic!, it's under construction for many years.

Located near Chinatown, this temple has an amazing architecture that stands out. This place is really nice and is a place to capture nice photos. There is a fee for the entrance to the shrine though. This temple has a small exhibition hall as well.

We made are our way towards China town and wanted to see this Buddha, now staying in Bangkok for a week we had seen a lot. It cost 40 Baht for a ticket to see the Buddha which is unbelievable value. Doing things yourself and not through a tour saves you a fortune. It's a quick visit but certainly worth... More

It was our first temple in a month long journey in 5 countries in Indochina, so I was not really sure how it would compare with all the other temples, shrines, stupas and pagodas we still had to visit but it sure was a great place to visit. No visit to Bangkok is complete without stopping here.

We reached at quarter past five and it had closed so we went back the next day and were happy that we made the effort. Beautiful temple and the statue is made of solid gold. It is in the heart of China town and is an experience not to be missed.

Went to this temple just to tick off the list of all the big Buddha's. It was actually one of the most beautiful temple. Beware of the many hawkers trying to sell you craps out front. Probably the worst temple for this. Good admission price. The Buddha image itself is like the rest however it is claimed to be made... More
