Top ways to experience Maha Pruettharam Worawihan Temple and similar attractions

The area
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.

Beautiful temple complex
Sep 2019 • Solo
I have visited this big and beautiful temple complex located at a walking distance from Bangkokian museum during my holiday in Bangkok. There are 2 big temples dedicated to Lord Buddha and a big white Wat Arun like stupa in between them. Entrance to the big temples were not allowed in the afternoon and I could go inside one of the smaller temples which has a beautiful giant Buddha in reclining posture like in Wat Pho.

Old Murals and the Reclining Buddha
Sep 2018 • Family
Had visited this Thai Buddhist temple in Bangkok a long back ago. This Buddhist temple is located in a quieter place and is lesser known to tourists.

The entrance of this Buddhist temple is ornately carved and has a portrait of the present King Rama X of Thailand. This temple complex has 3 main halls. The first hall is a shrine where local devotees pray and seek blessings. The second hall is a ordination hall where Buddhist monks are ordained as Buddhist priests and contains old Murals. The third hall houses the a 19 metre long replica of the Reclining Buddha and one has to give a small donation before entering. Had to remove the footwear before entering the Halls of the temple. As it is a holy place of worship, there is a certain dress code and a code of conduct should be maintained. Dress modestly and avoid wearing sleeveless outfits. In between the Halls, there are 4 religious spires of Khmer origin. Within the complex, there is a small tree which depicts the enlightenment of Buddha and an ornate Bell tower. There is no entry fee.

This Buddhist temple is an ideal place of worship for local devotees as well as people from other faith. However, it is a must visit even though, it is not on the main tourist itinerary.

A tourist-free gem in the heart of Bangkok
Jan 2018 • Solo
Deciding to walk from Silom to Wat Traimit I came across this magnificent complex. There are several buildings here, all intricately decorated and reminiscent of the best Thai style architecture seen in popular tourist spots. The highlight is the reclining buddha on the far left of the complex as well as the fact that there are hardly any visitors. In the 40 minutes or so I was there I was able to speak to locals and enjoy the architecture and buddha status in peace and quiet - an experience you will NOT get in any major tourist attraction in Bangkok.
Worth visiting at any time of day as it is so quiet. Admission is free and access is either from Trok Fraser & Neave Alley or from the unnamed alleyway off Thanon Mahaphuruttharam road on the other side of the complex.

Royal ancient hidden gem temple
Mar 2015 • Family
This is an ancient temple that was rebuilt in the 1850's. A Royal temple, there are 3 rectangular buildings here. The first buildings is Viharn Luang Por Sukhothai where worshipers can meditate and pray, the second building is the ordination hall with beautiful murals and a reclining Buddha is in the third building. There is no entry fee but a donation of 20 baht is required before entering the temple of the reclining Buddha. Very few visitors visit this temple and it is one of the hidden gems. Located on Mahapruettaram Road, you can also go there by river boat where you alight at the N3 Si Phraya Pier. A great way to spend a quiet peaceful morning.

This should be visited more often!???
Oct 2014 • Friends
We had a tuk tuk driver taking us to various temples one day and we asked him to take us to some of the temples that were not as "touristy" as others and he took us here. This place is absolutely beautiful and a little hidden gem in my opinion. It is shocking to me that there are only 3 reviews on here as this place is so peaceful and gorgeous.

There is no entrance fee to visit this place and almost no tourists in sight so you can take so many good shots without having 200 people in your line of sight. The area is quite big considering how compact everything is and there are a few things to see. First, you have the main temple where we saw a ceremony and a few monks walking out after. Then you have the little garden area where there are a few shrines here and there. And finally, the room where this giant golden Buddha laid down on its side.

Overall, this place is completely so underrated in comparison to other Wat temples in the area as it has so much to offer. If you read my review and are thinking should I go there? Don't even think twice and get a tuk tuk to take you there, absolutely worth it!
