City Pillar Suphanburi Tutelany Shrine
Feb 2020 • Couples
Well worth a visit. Neat, tidy and friendly. The site is laid out as a Chinese village with several shops and stalls selling both commodities and snack/food. Ample parking. The temple itself is worth visiting and there are two pagodas for you to climb and get a birds-eye view of the site. The mighty dragon houses the museum, pricey to enter, but interesting to visit. Many Chinese’s deities to see, a giant bell for you to hit and a wonderful display of bronze “Kung-foo” statues depicting the many stances of fighters. Gardens are neat and well cared for.

Worth a stop!
Mar 2019 • Couples
Suphan Buri is a little bit off the usual tourist trails. This Chinese shrine is one of its must-see attractions (free admission to the shrine itself). The temple is pleasant to visit and its two pagodas offer very nice views of the shrine and surrounding areas. The dragon at the entrance is big and impressive, and houses the "Dragon Descendants Museum" (499B for foreigners, inc. 200B for the audio guide).

Beautiful Dragon shrines and museum
Jan 2018 • Solo
Located 2 hours drive from Bangkok. This Chinese temple is marvelous beautiful and huge. There are many statue of Buddha God and Goddes, also 2 pagodas inside with is instagramable.

Next to the Shrines, there is a Dragon museum. The building form is a huge giants, divides into many chambers tell about the Chinese history from the first dinasty into modern government and how Chinese come to Thai.

I love the color of the shrine and the Dragon.

Encapsulation of Community Ethos
Oct 2017 • Friends
City Pillars in Thailand are the embodiment of the ethos of the local community and provide a focus for community activity and prayer.

The City Pillar Shrine in Suphan Buri is one of the most extensive, elaborate and colourful of all the city pillar shrines I have visited in Thailand.

Apart from the shrine housing the pillar itself, there is a Chinese pagoda, a colonnade of Chinese zodiac beasts cast in bronze, and another colonnade of Chinese deities.

Please remember to take off your shoes when visiting the Pillar Shrine itself, although it is okay to wear shoes elsewhere in the complex.

This is a fascinating complex, but it would help if there were some signs in English to help you work out what you are looking at.

Actually Better than it looks
Dec 2016
I have seen many Temples and "historical" displays around Asia, many are very ordinary to say the least. This one though is quite good, if its aim is to attract "farang"(western) tourists it needs a few more signs in English and a better headset setup for the tour. Whilst the display was very good our headsets kept breaking down or took so long to work we had passed through the section they related to. Although even without them the displays are visually and historically interesting as the tell the story of Chinese interaction with thais over centuries
