Peaceful and clean!
May 2019
We went to a funeral at Wat Thepleela. The temple was peaceful and clean. The parking is adequate. The rooms are well maintained.

I saw a funeral which took place in Wat Thep leela. Many relatives of the dead, coffin and the monks go around of the tower in the wat.
I just saw some Miss La Sen dolls in JJ mall which is near Chatuchak flea market and some Buddhist temple (wat) in Bangkok.
Maybe Miss La Sen is a protective charm, amulet? Later, when I return JJ mall to seek Miss La Sen dolls for souvenir gifts after my trip but I don’t see more.
I heard that Thai Kumanthong is a amulet but I am scared , dare not use it and it is so expensive. Kumanthong maybe costs over 21,000 baht.

specific and unique Thai buddhist temple

I often stop by Wat Thepleela to go to the cheap shops which are opposite of Ramkhamheng University.

This wat belongs to Theravada Buddhism, so people can eat meat in the temple. But Mahayana Buddhism must eat vegetarian, no meat. The food in this temple on the festival is rather delicious.

Many young people who come here and donate the fresh flowers, candles, money, fruits, food sincerely. The young men often demand sortilege sincerely.

Big Buddhist pagoda and many people come here
May 2017 • Family
I like the activity: put the floating candle and flower on the river in Loy krathong festival in this pagoda. On the big festival, many food and drink kiosks can put in this pagoda. Many Buddhist often donate the gifts to pagoda. Any time, this pagoda has many people who come there. There are lots of meditation courses for Buddhists.

Wat Thep Leela - Top Places to Visit in Bangkok,Thailand
Apr 2017 • Friends
It is located in soi 41, Ramkhamhaeng road, Hua Mark, Bangkapi, Bangkok.
This is the big, large pagoda which has the unique traditional Thai architecture.
Here, people worship many roosters.
There are many children toys, dolls on the altar such as Hello kitty, Miss La Sen doll, Thai dolls, van, airplanes, cars... It is nice and interesting, maybe it can attract the children, young people to go to the pagoda. People can realise the sortilege. Each sortilege sheet has English, Thai and Chinese language.
That is the royal temple. It is easy to seek, you can ask the local people about this wat.
There is a boat pier at Wat Thep Leela. You can take a boat to go to the center of Bangkok. You can take the airport rail link and stop at Ramkhamhaeng station, after that you take the bus route 71 or 113 to go to Ramkhamhaeng university, the soi 41 is opposite of the Ramkhamhaeng university.
