This Temple is not just a place for a happy snap and a pick. It really is a beautiful place to go and pray, give offering and thanks to the Divine.

This is a must see in Bangkok, the delicate glow of the gold statue is something we really admired. The area of the temple is well-maintained, it's definitely worth visiting. There is a small Chinese temple across the street and the place is really close to China town.

This is a small temple with a single star. The Golden Buda! It's worth visiting though. The Buda is just amazing. I was there by 4:00pm and there was not too many people. Pictures are allowed inside.

This is a live temple so there are buddist priest in prayer as you look around. The Buddha is impressive. Don't get catch out by the stands outside selling rubbish.

Had been in Dec,14. One can see golden Buddha statue. Nice place to visit while in Bangkok. Need to climb some stairs until you see the main shrine.

A bit far away from the Pier. Can take tuk tuk outside the Pier for THB100. Nothing much to see other than the golden Buddha.
