A hidden treasure

It is a beautiful temple with amazing mural arts. I was there when the artists working on the restorations and a great experience. The surrounding area (near the channel) is also worthy of some exploration.

Dedicated to Buddha by three royals
Dec 2018 • Solo
The construction of this temple was initiated by prince Supradit in the 1860s. He was one of the 82 children of king Rama IV = king Mongkut. The prince died in 1862 and his brother Noppawong continued building. He died as well before the temple could be completed. Eventually their father saw to it the temple was accomplished. Therefore the Wat is dedicated to Buddha by the three of them, symbolized by three Buddha statues with different postures.

Remarkable are the murals in the ordination hall.

Admission fee for foreign tourists is 100 baht, if someone is around to collect the money. Keep in mind that some Buddhists strongly object to ask money for visiting a place of meditation. Free admission for Thai.

As for all Wat visits: dress properly i.e. long pants, no naked shoulders.

Found a gem of a temple in the heart of Chinatown in Bangkok. It housed a Buddha made of gold and weighs 5 tons! There’s also a museum inside depicting the migration of Chinese people from the 1800’s. It certainly is worth a visit.

Nice non-tourist temple. Dress PROPERLY if you want to enter

I saw a golden spire 2 blocks from my hotel and decided to follow up. A nice temple forgotten by the tourist crowd.
There is a dress code for those wishing to enter. I didn't comply, so I only got to see the outside.

Very quiet and local.

Worth seeing and not touristy. No entrance fee

I was walking to meet my friend in this chinese duck restaurant at the corner when i discovered this temple. Mostly only some locals were here. If you stay in Samsen road area you can walk and see this hidden beautiful quiet temple . Please see from my photos the view

Nearby you can see many small restaurants serving inexpensive thai delicious foods and drinks and many backpackers hostel. Plenty of Caucasians walking along this area.

I also saw many water refilling stations and coin operated machine.

I recommend this to children or even people on wheelchair since there are enough space in this temple and you can breathe and relax unlike other more famous temples where it is usually crowded

Best way to come here is just by taxi from boat station Phra Arthit in Chaophraya. Will cost about 50-60 baht.

Attractive ordination hall but pricey entry fee
Apr 2014 • Couples
We recently visited Wat Tri Thotsathep Worawihan (100 baht per person), a third grade Royal Temple built by Prince Supradit and Prince Nopphawong during the reign of King Rama IV.

Here you can see a traditional golden Chedi, a small Wihan and a very attractive Phra Ubosot. We enjoyed seeing the seated Buddha figure but mostly liked the decoratively painted walls inside the ordination hall. The room has many images and scenes, rich in colour that are lovely to see and photography is allowed and was encouraged by the caretaker who showed us around the temple grounds.

Wat Tri Thotsathep Worawihan is located around 6-8 minute walk from the Wat Bowonniwetwiharn and can easily be combined with a visit to that sacred temple.

In the end, the entry fee for Wat Tri Thotsathep Worawihan seemed quite high relative to what you can see there. This might turn some off from visiting here. Others will appreciate the wall murals and other decorative images you can see at this temple.
