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.

Hindu temple, visit if you are nearby
Feb 2020
I drove past this Hindu temple many times, and now visited it for the 1st time when showing Bangkok to my relatives. The small and very colourful temple is across the road from Silom Village; we took a taxi from the Silom BTS station for the short ride (on foot 15-20 minutes), I told the taxi driver to bring us to Wat Khaek (Thais call Indians Khaek) which he immediately understood. Before we walked around in the temple area we sat for 20 minutes on the chairs to observe the Indian priests without understanding what they did in one of the small chapels, and Thais buying incense sticks, trays with flowers and fruits then praying (to be on the safe side some Thais pray to any God) and later handing over the trays to 2 Indian priests who throw the contents of the trays into baskets. The temple has beautiful mosaic artwork, shows many deities with the goddess Kali in the inner sanctum. Worthwhile to visit when staying in Bangkok for more than 1 week.

The Sri Maha Mariamman Temple is a South Indian architecture style Hindu temple in Bangkok, Thailand. It was built in 1879 by Vaithi Padayatchi, a Tamil Hindu immigrant .
It still attracts many visitors looking to make merit .

Located on the corner of Silom Road and Pan Road .
It’s worth visiting if you’re in the area .

Beautiful Indian temple
Dec 2019 • Solo
Sri Maha Mariamman temple is a beautiful South Indian temple in Silom Road and I have visited the same during my trip to Bangkok. I was staying at Novotel Bangkok Silom Road hotel and this temple is located at a walking distance. I had gone on a Saturday afternoon and this place was crowded with local Thai people along with handful of Indian tourists. There are many small temples in the complex but the main deity is Goddess Parvati. Devotees were offering flowers and ambience was very nice. I liked the intricate colorful sculptures of gods and goddess which decorate the temple tower.

Strange Rules
Nov 2019
A strange one, this.
It is supposed to be Hindu and the entrance sign says, “Take off hats”, nothing about shoes, photos etc.
Plenty of people inside kept their shoes on so I went in and took a couple of photos only for a guard to say, “Buddha, no photos”.
What????? If shoes are ok then it is not a Buddhist temple and both Buddhist and Hindu temples the world over have millions of people taking photos every single day with no problem. That includes monks.
It’s only a small place and you can pretty well see everything from the outside so I just left.

Absolutely wonderful

If you want a different temple while in Bankong, the Hindi Temple of Sri Mariam Man is a great choice.
Same block of King Power MahaNakhon, so you can visit both in a couple of hours.
Strongly recommanded.

Roots from Tamil Nadu
Jul 2019
This temple was built by the early Tamil Nadu settlers in Bangkok and currently managed by Tamil Nadu priest. The temple has adopted local Buddhist worship practices for the local Thai devotees whilst the priest at them temple still conducts the the "abishegam" and "poojas" following the ancient Hindu practices. For tourist, this place will be something different than the Buddhist temple they will be visiting in Bangkok and for South Indians, this plays will give you opportunity to perform your prayers like in any South Indian temple, especially Tamil Nadu.

Beautiful but commercial
Jul 2019 • Family
Beautiful, traditional South Indian temple in the heart of Bangkok. The dedication and bhakti of Thai people is amazing. One can also sit for a while and enjoy the spiritual vibe.

Now for the unsavoury part, the temple priests do not follow the Agamas or ritual procedure, the Archana offering platter costs 80 THB and is recycled, devotees get only a 300 ml bottle of water as Prasadam. The devotees, mainly locals line up with their offering and the priests very mechanically take the platter, put a kumkum tilak on their foreheads and return the water as Prasadam.

The offered fruits, coconut and garlands are recycled and sold to the next batch of devotees. This is against Agamas as used stuffs can’t be offered again. This poor practice is also popular at some commercial temples in India.

The head priest sits at a table selling Sri Yantras 😊

These fellows are merely operating a commercial venture and actually committing a sin by sending devotees away from Maa Annapurna with just a bottle of water.
