I'm not sure if it was because it was raining, or because I am not SO into temples and pagodas but I was quite disappointed by the silver pagoda in the grounds of the royal palace. The outside structure was stunning, I thought that for all the buildings but stepping into the silver pagoda was a disappointment. The statue of... More

A tropical rain spoiled are visit somewhat, but when the sun broke through the clouds the photo opportunities were stunning. Beware that photographing inside the pagodes is not allowed and that "decent" clothing is required (covering of upper arms and legs and upper torso). If your dress is considered inappropriate (e.g. too much decolleté) a covering shirt can be hired/bought... More

Interesting but the silver floor is covered. There is a spot where it's uncovered and they're taping the silver down! The jade buddha is neat

They will not let you take pictures inside to see the silver plated flooring, but it is worth spending 5 minutes to see the Buddha that is made of 250 pounds of gold and a giant diamond in the forehead.

Part of the Royal Palace visit - the floor of this Pagoda is covered in metre square silver tiles. Go to the Royal Palace and you'll find the Silver Pagoda.

The Silver Pagoda is amazing. The building structure is so uniquely designed in the local architecture. It's worth a visit.

When you pay entrance to The Royal Palace, The Silver Pagoda is part of that tour. TSP has gotten its name from the tons of silver that the floor is made of. But most of it is covered and you can just get a glimpse of the silver-plates. There is lots of other things to look at though. Inside the... More

The Silver Pagoda forms part of your tour of the Royal Palace. The Pagoda is impressive but would be spectacular, however, to protect the precious silver floors from the feet of thousands of tourists, they are by necessity covered over. A bit catch-22; to get the best experience, you need to see the silver, but to protect the silver for... More

The silver Pagoda is a part of the tour you will get when entering The Palace. The architecture and the gardens is worth seeing, but we didn`t find the silver pagoda that exciting. It is apparently the floor that has silver on it....not much silver to see elsewhere.....maybe except for some of the dusted down statues in there.....

Worth a short visit to see the architecture design.Strictly no taking photo is allowed within the building. Lots of displays and statues but limited info is available unless you are with a tour guide.
