A must visit for anyone visiting Bangkok. The Golden Buddha was so much bigger than what I had anticipated, it was incredible. I took lots of photos as no one particular did the magnificent structure justice. The area surround was one of my favourite places in Bangkok. I like the fountains and the many different things to look at.

The compulsory tour by the House Guides is the only way to see the combination of interior Eastern decor mixed with European comforts.

We arrived this temple on 12 th August. This supposed to be the Birthday of the Queen. It was very crowded. This a very grand temple. You must visit this in Bangkok.

Such a lovely monument in a beautiful building. With a unique history marked by only recent (in the last 50 years) discovering that this monument is made of 18 karat gold. In person this moment is a sight to behold. A must see in Bangkok.

We didn't see many temples in Bangkok but we wanted to see this one as it sounded fascinating and it was. There are some people outside selling souvenirs and as you get to the foot of the temple two photographers get in your face taking pictures but after that the experience is nice. It's a combination of a museum, Buddha... More

If you see one temple in Bangkok, this is the one! It is a large sitting Buddha of solid gold. The grounds are beautiful as are the views!

This temple was truly amazing. It is a must see while in Bangkok. This was our first introduction to a Buddhist temple and I would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful to see this stunning golden Buddha and the temple it is in, the architecture is impressive even the ceiling and doors are beautifully done I enjoyed the visit I feel it was worth seeing. There is a small fee to enter.
