“This temple is OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

There are too many temples to visit in Bangkok but this is one of the best. An amazing sight to see all that gold. This one is worth a visit

“Not to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Excellent -- take your time, walk in the gaps between tour groups and this can be a most enjoyable place. Lunch time seems a fairly good to go because at least in the times I have been, the crowds seem a little less overpowering. Photos to cherish.

“Lots of Gold”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Buddha is interesting, but not to the same degree as others in Bangkok. The best part of our visit was watching people bringing alms and then watching a woman in near constant motion moving them so there would be room for more. Combine this visit with a stop in Chinatown.

“Lord Buddha lay peacefully.. and the golden hues of his astride frame.. speechless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is a must see for those who would like to visit bangkok not merely for the massage parlours and shopping. Its a huge sculpture made out of GOLD, of the reclining Budhha, and all thetourist had to go around him.. Never seem something like this as stupendous and beautiful
