Our biking group rides several times a week in the Pathum Thani/Nonthaburi area and often the first wat we ride through is Wat Bangchak. If we have new riders I ALWAYS will take them there because it is so interesting. There is a huge Buddha statue overlooking the river and we often take pictures in front. There are three entrances to the area under the statue and each is interesting in itself; one is a large dragon head, one is a large tiger head and one, I think, is the head of Yama (but not sure). In addition to the large Buddha, there are numerous statues that depict the Ramayana story and also the life of the Buddha. Another funny area, has several movie superhero statues....Rambo, Snow White, Popeye....etc. Why? Who knows but certainly entertaining. Don't miss the large statue of Quan I'm (the female Buddha) when you enter the wat on the north side. It is surrounded by a beautiful dragon sculpture. Go and enjoy this non-touristed, interesting wat.
