“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Visited July 2013. We really like this temple. Beautiful giant golden sitting Buddha is the centrepiece. A really nice temple to walk around. Only our group there. It is known for the huge red swing. Part of a tour but still worth seeing.

“Famous for the giant swing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

This is a small temple near the Chinatown. Similar to most of the temples in Thailand, its quite clean and nice to look at, but its not one of the top 3 or even top 5 must see temples of Bangkok. It is more famous for the giant swing in front. If you are short in time, you can just pass it on the road or spend about 5-10 minutes here. if you have more time, then go in. It has a nice architecture.

“Very interesting wat. Noon services with many monks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The temple is lovely and the large swing out front is worth seeing. The area around the temple has a wide variety of shops featuring amulets, second-hand jewelry and books. Worthwhile to stroll sois after viewing the temple

“Go to see beautiful architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

An ancient temple is well known for its beautiful architecture. Visit during the day to see its magnificient beauty. It is also a great place to visit for a night ceremony on religious holiday. Also, check out a great local milk-shop near by called Nom-mon.
