Address
Neighborhood: Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Beautiful architecture
Sep 2019 • Friends
During my vacation in Bangkok, I was staying in Silom area and I had visited this beautiful temple complex dedicated to Lord Buddha. At the entrance there are vendors selling flowers and incense sticks. One has to climb up marble steps to reach the main temple which has a beautiful golden color Buddha in sitting posture with beautiful decor using chandeliers and the colorful paintings on the walls depicting stories from the life of Lord Buddha are absolutely mesmerizing. Also liked the beautiful architecture of the temple showcasing intricate art work in golden color. Entrance ticket of 40 baht is there for foreign national.

Go to this temple to make a donation on coffin. It is also a blessing to give than receive. :) Easy access just make a turn from BTS exit and you can see the temple easily.

Busy temple but still peaceful

Nice temple that is still using incense ! It also has the Chinese Temple attached next door for the coffin donation which is so lovely.
This temple is the one where the pink cows used to be- they were here when we last visited last year but this year they have been moved to the countryside - there are posters showing hem arriving with the monks blessing them.
One side of the temple is used for funerals and there can be some beautiful flower arrangements.

Coffin Donation
Nov 2019
Visited this temple to do coffin donation for the orphans. The process of donating is written clearly for foreigners. The people are friendly enough to guide you if you seem lost.

Please remember to wear clothes that cover at least below your knee.

Thank you.

This temple provide standard coffins for those in needs from donation from peoples who comes to pray and donate.
The unique part about this temple is they open 24 hours, so whenever you feel want to do some merit, you may go here :)

Update October 2019: they don’t use incense sticks anymore and using candles instead, its cost 50 thb for a pair.

Temple in the middle of Bangkok
Sep 2019
This was a walk from where I was staying, so thought I would see. I arrived early in the morning and there were hardly any tourists. It would be a nice break away from fast paced Bangkok if you needed some quite time. The grounds were clean and there was a bit of bling to enjoy.

Interesting place to visit
Aug 2019
This temple is not particularly on any of the tourist destination lists. It is different and fascinating. I spent three hours there one morning (open 24 hours) and could have stayed longer. There are dedicated altars/shrines to each day of the week that relate to your birth day, a charity that provides assistance to the funerals of the poor and the temple itself within the grounds. It is easy to get to.
