Temple of the Angels
Dec 2019
We were at Wat Ratchanatdaram and saw this temple near by so we thought we would take a peak. It cost 50BAHT to get in which included the Sunthon Phu Museum. We didn't have much time here, about 20 mins. I would recommend about an hour. Don't forget to dress respectfully. Shoulders and knees must be covered.

It started it construction during King Rama II time. He wanted it to be a tribute to his daughter. Hence why it means Temple of the Angels. It is famous for its architecture influenced by Chinese arts.

The great Thai poet Sunthon Phu, lived here during his monkshood in the early 1840's. His biography is shown at the museum that is dedicated to him on site.

There is lots of fun history here to see. If you are not into history the grounds are stunning and the architecture is much different them most of the other temples in Bangkok

We visited this temple 19 years ago and it hasn’t lost its charm so different from the gold stupas and wooden temples really interesting with all the pottery decoration really impressive and well worth a visit.

Pleasant temple that also houses the Sunthon Phu museum in its compound. The highlight of the temple is the small but pretty white Buddha, carved from alabaster and housed in a beautifully decorated chamber. 50 baht entry fee.

Less crowded temple
Feb 2018
Despite being very close to the golden mountain temple, this complex of shrines seems to be less visited. There are a number of sights in the complex and there's a BT50 entrance fee to some of them, but most are free to visit. There's also a small museum on site as part of the entrance fee. However some of the pavilions you pay for are actually closed & you can only see them from the door way or windows. Work that one out.

The White Buddha
Jan 2018 • Solo
If you happen to be at Loha Prasat, you may stop by this temple and visit. This temple has a petite White Buddha and white stupas which is different than other temples and also the 52 Bhikkhunis. It's definitely worth a visit!

I saw this upon first arriving. It has the White Buddha, the 52 Bhikkhunis (female monks) and also a museum on Sunthon Phu who is considered Shakespeare of Thailand. So I made two trips to see it all. It's pretty interesting and has been here since 1839.

Temple of the court lady
Oct 2016 • Couples
Wat Teptidaram is Royal temple build in the reign of King Rama III dedicated to his beloved daughter located closely to Lohaprasat, you can get there convenience by walking after Lohaprasat tour. This temple is compound the Chinese artist style and Thai artist style in finely combination. It has the 3 large halls that usually open only two, first that is the main hall or ordain hall and second is the lady monk hall, the main hall is really majestic, gave the feeling of royal throne hall. Sceneric inside is quite dark and shady but the main Buddha sculpture is clearly shining because it’s made of white Marble called Buddhavilas or White stone image placed on the royal throne in bark shaped that imitated from the real royal throne in the palace.
