Beautiful and very restful!
Aug 2020
Probably one of the greater Sunday afternoons I have spent here in Bangkok - the temple is new - and ( thankfully) not very busy because of the C-19 closed border situation -

Music playing is calm and restful - the temple has several resting areas -
Trees and plants bound up with flowering orchids, clean courtyards and the shimmering edifice to the Buddhist faith - a completely enjoyable experience, made even better with no entrance fees charged. (not sure how long this will be the case...)

The tiles are new, the gold plated, the mirrors sparkling, the mosaic dazzling - any influencer's personal dream - Also a very unusual design for a temple.

Slightly off the beaten track but still in the midst of it all, about a 15 minute walk from Wat Pho in the direction of the Golden Mount -
The nearest MRT station is Sam Yot or MRT Sanam Chai depending on your goals to visit.

Well worth the visit and the time!

"WAT" AN AMAZING NAME !!!
Sep 2019
Bangkok has plenty of Royal Palaces and temples to visit and explore, many with, from a western view, unusual names. Many of them are located close to the river so be sure to take a trip to appreciate their grandeur. I can recommend an evening cruise on the river, lasting about three hours, including magnificent buffet dinner and complimentary drink costing about $A50. I found the Tourist Authority the best place to make a booking. Visit and enjoy !

Beautiful temple with few people
Dec 2019
One of the least crowded temples but very beautiful and worth the visit. No entry fee. There is also a cemetery in the back for members of the royal family with lovely gardens and stupas.

Beautiful small temple.
Apr 2017
Just situated next from Saranrom Park, this is the smallest royal temple(2rai) built in the reign of King Rama IV.(1864),his ashes of the king was also enshrined at the temple. Very peaceful atmosphere at this temple as not many people come here so I can enjoy meditation in the ubosot and gradually look at the great work of wall paintings in the main ordination hall. The wall paintings depicts the royal ceremonies over 12 months and legend of the solar eclipse phenomenon.

I also enjoy walking around the temple surrounded by several prangs and a large chedi (pagoda) behind. The ubosot, including its round columns, and the pagoda are completely surfaced with small square tiles of gray to white marble tiles.

Royal Wat Under Renovation
Sep 2016 • Solo
Most parts of the wat are off limits due to renovation. However, you can still see the white shrines at the sides which has remarkable details on them. I hope to visit again once it's fully opened.

Temple for the royals
Dec 2015 • Couples
We just stumbled onto this temple by chance . This temple closes at 12:30, so pls time your visit accordingly . This is the temple used by the royals and hence there is a statue of the King as well in one of the small temples. Have a look at the art on top of each of these temples , that has some deep meaning as well. Considered good for pregnant woman , who can go and wish for the well being of their kid in the temple of sit a

Beautiful hidden gem in Bangkok
Sep 2015
This beautiful small Wat was recommended for us to visit by a kindly old man; apparently it is open only twice a month according to the lunar calendar and entrance is free. We were the only visitors and another kindly Thai man who spoke English gave us a tour of the Wat, which was still undergoing restoration works undertaken by the Thai royal family. A former King and the head monk are interred at this location; there is a statue of King Rama IV and various smaller chedi with decorative influences from Thai, Angkor and Hindu origins. It was an honor to have discovered this place. Highly recommended.

Royal temple off the beaten track
Mar 2015 • Family
This is a Royal temple of the First order built by King Rama IV in 1864. Located at Saranron Park near the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. There are some beautiful artifacts here and also King Rama IV's ashes at the base of the main Buddha image. Murals at the divination hall depict events from King Rama IV's life. Not many visitors so a quiet and peaceful visit can be enjoyed here. Admission is free and the temple is open from 8 am to 6 pm daily.

Not an occasional tourist spot but a beautiful temple
Aug 2015 • Couples
We had no idea about this Wat and so neither had we planned to visit it. We got down at the tier from the express boat to visit Wat po and grand Palace but when we were enquiring a Thai person told us that this temple is open only for a day in the whole year as that was some important Buddhist Day ( few days after Queen's birthday) and it had golden Buddha. ( I had originally asked for Wat Saket & Wat Trimit).

When we went inside the shrine it was peaceful and there was some kind of sermon some religious text being read by the Monk and others were sitting around. We joined them too though we didn't know the language.

Then we met the Chief Architect who was in charge of the restoration work going on there since quite some time. He showed us around. Explained to us the significance. He was surprised that we had come to this Wat as it wasn't the usual tourist location.

It was beautiful nevertheless.

Exquisite Mosaic Works in this Bangkok Royal temple of the highest grade.
Jun 2015
A Royal Temple of the highest grade, Wat Rajabopitsathitmahasimaram is, for some reasons, not on the usual tourist track but as a resident of Bangkok, this is one of my preferred temples and which can be easily visited when in Wat Pho as it is nearby. The mosaic works and colors are exquisite and worth seeing. Highly recommended.
