Not much to see
Dec 2019
Not much to see here. Tall, spindly arch which was the frame of a swing. Not much information about it. Doesn’t seem that important to anyone any more to maintain it with the swing in place.

Just ok, nothing worth really seeing at this site
Nov 2019
This is a site near a temple that used to have a swing, now, that swing is gone and just the giant red frame of where the swing was is left. Not much to see there frankly, surely not worth seeking out, worth maybe 5 minutes if you are in the area but not much more. Worth a few photos and then you can be on your way. This swing is in all the tourbooks for historical purposes and has no real visual value or purpose now.

we just passed by it
Oct 2019
nothing much to see really, our tour van just passed by it so i did not get to really see it properly. There is no swing on it anymore, since it was deemed to be dangerous.
Maybe worth visiting if you are really near the area.

Outstanding feature.

This is quite an outstanding feature sitting alone in its own space. Very majestic. But what makes this so extra special it that it lies opposite the entrance of the magnificent Wat Suthat temple. This had a wow factor it really did I hope by seeing the attached pictures you are lured into this very humble space.

This is part of the old Hindu traditional festival. Now it's not used. This was construed by the King.

It is not a must see place but is close to some other good attractions of Bangkok. You may skip it but if someone plans to just wander around in areas of Bangkok (Khaosan Road), I don't think one will mind visiting it. It is not an extra ordinary place.

Giant swing
Mar 2019 • Family
We passed the temple on our way to the temple. Its a giant swing on the street. Apparently, it was a swing for the Kings children's hundreds of years ago.

There's nothing much to see.

don't go out of your way

I passed by the Giant Swing during a taxi ride from the Grand Palace to the Jim Thompson House. It was big a prominent but I would not go out of my way to see it. A little more interesting when you read about the history of people dying when using the swing during a Hindu ceremony.
