Beautiful standing Buddha
Jun 2020 • Solo
After the lockdown this is the best time to visit or revisit Bangkok with its beautiful Wats. Wat Inthsrawihan is worth the trip just for its beautiful standing Buddha! The grounds are also lovely. Highly recommended.

Quiet Temple with afternoon Meditation!
Dec 2019
We had some spare time one afternoon and got talking to some people who told us to check out the standing Wat Intharawihan. So we took a tuk tuk to the standing Buddha. It cost us 100Baht for 3 stops which took us about an hour and 45 mins.

The massive standing Buddha which stands 32 meters height and 10 meters width was breathtaking. Cost 40B per person to get in. It has a small museum that took about 10-15 mins to go through plus a temple. There was an English speaking guide that comes with you through the museum and tells you a bit about the grounds and the history then allows you to explore the rest of the grounds at your own pace. The guide was an government employee and did not cost anything. There were lots of different Buddha statutes, 30 min afternoon medication and best of all we had no crowds. There might have been 15 people there all spread out! Don't forget to dress respectfully or you maybe denied entry.

It’s really a site to see if you have the time or are in the neighbourhood!

Secret Temple with many pilgrims and a small museum
Jan 2020 • Couples
the grand standing statue is very impressive. When we were there thee was a relic fromnSriLanka and there was a continuous chanting by monks. Very col our full and the museum is small but very interesting with very nice Buddha statues.

Worth a visit
Jan 2020 • Couples
Basically this site, down a bit of a grimey backstreet, is devoted to a hugely tall golden statue of the Buddha. There are a few smaller shrines too which are worth the visit.

Anyone whinging about the 40baht entrance fee needs to get a life - it's only a quid!

It's 30 minutes or so wandering around and the "Buddha museum" housing many sizes of Buddha images and some artists impressions is also included.

We were glad we went albeit briefly!

Huge standing buddha
Jan 2020 • Couples
Less touristy than some of the other temples, but still plenty to see and look around and worth a visit. There is a huge standing buddha and apparently you can climb the stairs to the top for good views over the city. We didn't do the climb but did enjoy a look round the temple.

Luang Pho Tho, the 32 meters high Buddha statue
Nov 2019
Smaller temple and not overcrowded by tourists.
Main attraction is the 32 meters high Buddha statue.
Unfortunately the ordination hall and the surrounding area was not open to the public during the visit as a ceremony was taking place.

Wasn't Impressed
Mar 2019
I didn't find this place impressive. Pretty much see the giant, golden standing Buddha, take a photo and leave. An annoying, incessant voice boomed over speakers in what I am guessing was Thai. Had no idea what was going on. Cheap entrance fee, but I could have easily lived without making this stop. The heat combined with the continual bombarding loud speaker voice made the experience less desirable.

Tall Buddha!
Nov 2019 • Friends
Went there to check out the tallest Buddha located within the city limits. The area is pretty small, and the fee to get in is small and well worth it.

What an amazing architecture!
All buildings made of gold. The huge Pagoda with the sound of the tinkling bells.
Really amazing.
And the emerald Buddha statue in glittering gold. A must visit when in Bangkok!

Impressive, but look around
Sep 2019
This is one big standing Buddha that rightly is the center of this temple. It helps remind ourselves that we are a small part of the universe.

There's space to sit and meditate, but walk around and see the grounds.
