This temple we visited was off the beaten track. It is one of the oldest Chinese temples in Bangkok. In fact, it is older than the Bangkok city. The Chinese deity, Guan Yu or Guan Kong symbolises loyalty and courageous, was a military general during the Three Kingdoms period in China. Unique to the local Thai Chinese community, Guan Yu is also the God of good fortune. If you would like to have a different experience and learn about the culture of Thonburi, this is the place to visit.

This is one of my favourite shrines in Bangkok. Why? Because it feels very original. The shrine ha a beautiful design with nice artwork, but it is not maintained very well. At places it looks rather worn. But to me this add to the originality of the place and you feel it is genuine. Go there and feel it for yourself.

Located across the Chao Phraya River (from most hotels/sights) is this small Chinese family shrine. Stepping off the water taxi and walking down the narrow walkway brought me from the craziness of Bangkok to a small Chinese village. It’s not a large structure nor is the complex large. In fact, it’s quite small, but that lends itself to having an intimate charm. There were several Chinese devotees praying and plenty of incense wafting throughout the air. Be sure to explore the old-time Thai neighborhood that surrounds this temple.

Gong Wu Shrine is located in Khlong San area, next to the Chao Phraya River. It is an old shrine by the river. We drove to the shrine. The views on the river building were beautiful. The staff were friendly. We donated money and made wishes for good lucks.

This tiny little Chinese shrine is located on the west bank of the Chao Pharya River. It is dedicated to the Chinese god of war and is said to protect the common man. It was built by the early Chinese immigrants who settled here when the capital used to be in Ayutthaya and Bangkok was just a little village. The shrine has some typical Chinese features in it like the dragons, ornamental lamps and a pagoda. It is a very interesting building.

When touring Kudichin, stopping at this shrine is a must. It was built by Chinese traders around 200 years ago and has been kept in the original style since then. Beautiful carvings and lots of traditional Chinese elements. Unfortunately taking photos is not allowed inside.

This shrine is a Chinese temple just next to the Princess Memorial Park on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya river. With Chinese style roof as well as dragons on the roof and pillars, this temple also has beautiful carvings on the doors and windows. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
