The Oldest Mosque in BKK on Chao Phaya river (near Wat Arun)
Oct 2019
This is the Oldest Mosque in Bangkok located on Chao Phaya river and near Wat Arun. Very old fashioned mosque with some old calligraphic articles. A must visit if anyone is visiting Wat Arun. Very quiet and calm ambiance. Fortunately, I got an opportunity to be the Imam for Asr prayer (Alhamdulillah) as there was no Imam.

Great historic site and beautiful architecture, TON SON MOSQUE, Bangkok.....
Jun 2019 • Solo
I was at this mosque on FRIDAY 28th JUNE 2019. Where local Muslims were preparing to perform the obligatory Friday Prayer. Love this site! Originally designed in architecture similar to that of Thai Buddhist monasteries, it seems that the Tom Son Mosque was redesigned in more classic Arabic style in the 1950s by devoted Muslims that worshipped here. One of the neat things we liked about Tom Son Mosque was the small cemetery with old headstones, visible from the roadside platform steps which peer into the mosque courtyard. Easily reached by public boat. It can be find easily by using google maps. Beautiful outside and inside. A must -visit site.

The oldest mosque of BKK (1683)
Mar 2019 • Friends
If you’re looking for pure and old buildings in BKK, here’s one you wouldn’t think of easily. It is at about 10-15 mins walking distance from the world famous Wat Arum temple: in it’s simpliciteit certainly worth a visit!

mosque near Chao Phraya
Jan 2017 • Friends
easily reached by public boat. It can be find easily by using google maps. Beautiful outside and inside. Unluckily, there was no one when I came on Sunday morning. It seems closed, but actually the door can be opened.

Small mosque on the west side of the Chao Phraya
May 2014 • Couples
The Tom Son Mosque dates back to the Ayutthaya period, being founded during the reign of King Narai in 1688. It can be found in between Wat Arun and Wat Kanlayanamit on the west side of the Chao Phraya River.

The mosque is quite small and located under the underpass road. You will see it as you are walking in the direction of Wat Kanlayanamit. Originally designed in architecture similar to that of Thai Buddhist monasteries, it seems that the Tom Son Mosque was redesigned in more classic Arabic style in the 1950s by devoted Muslims that worshipped here.

One of the neat things we liked about Tom Son Mosque was the small cemetery with old headstones, visible from the roadside platform steps which peer into the mosque courtyard. No idea about the dates of the graveyard occupants but they are likely quite old considering the long history of this mosque.

In the end, Tom Son Mosque is a minor attraction that you might want to check out if you are making your way from Wat Arun to Wat Kanlayanamit. Otherwise, we'd give this one a pass, especially if you are short on time during your trip to Bangkok.
