This temple is well know amongst the Thai people for funeral purpose, but also for paying respect and wishing good luck for anniversaries or other occasions. Peaceful during the day time and busy in the evening.

Beutiful temple of Buddha, with mirror mosaic tiles exterior, designer glass windows, beautiful thai architecture and windchimes. The crematorium is just beside! Even the deady body burning furnaces are enclosed in very beautiful structure. Just outside ekamai sky train station on sukhumvit road.
