The fusion of Chinese and Thai design elements at this temple, and the fact that it's affiliated with the royal family, means that it is, aside from being obviously gorgeous, one of those sites in Bangkok where Buddhism is wedded to big money, and I always wonder what Buddha would think, assuming that he actually lived and is, let's say, watching over us.
The young monks or acolytes who were hanging lanterns and such when I was there were noisy and acted as though the desire of visitors for quiet contemplation at a place supposedly dedicated to quiet contemplation had no meaning to them.
Still and all, this is one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok and maybe all of Thailand. Too bad the canal boats don't stop here much, if at all.
