Some people say "you've seen one pagoda, you've seen them all", but a pagoda is more than just a building itself. I thought this pagoda was very beautiful inside and out. Lovely colours on the outside of the building, with many displays of Buddhas, including the emerald buddha, inside the temple. The whole palace complex is quite peaceful, and it... More

We had a guided tour and it was filled with needless details, leaving us quite bored. Pretty place, but very crowded in all of the buildings, so it was hard to even walk.

Housed inside it's own palace, the Silver Pagoda actually has a silver floor, which is being protected by a woven read carpet. Lovely to see.

A beautiful building with an amazing floor made of silver. A grand building inside the palace complex. Interesting to note the French connection with engraved fleur-de-lys on the silver floor panels that appeared after the French took them away for cleaning.

We had a bad guide who raced us around the complex. Inside the pagoda sacking covered all but about 2 square meters of dull grey metal. Very expensive disappointing site.

Can you really rate a temple or place of worship? If I had to, I would say that the Silver Pagoda is indeed beautiful. The collections of Buddha figures are vast, ornate and well preserved. The building is gorgeous to view from the outside and inside, however, the silver floors (for which it gets its name) are covered up by... More

This silver pagoda was interesting in the different artifacts that they have available to view. Things that have been given to the king over the years. It took us a while to realize that this was the silver pagoda as that's not how it was labeled on the map of the palace.
