Big Wat Complex in Nonthaburi. There is a Songethew No. 3 with Red color running between Nonthaburi Pier Pibul 3 to Wat Sangkhatan. Have free food everyday at 9.30AM, its primarily for the resident practitioners. Free drink is available for everyone though. Big Vihar to meditate. Taxi from Wat to Nonthaburi will cost 70THB. Small food shops nearby.

I visited Wat Sangkhathan in February 2016 during Lunar New Year period. My Thai friends drove us to Wat Sangkhathan as I stayed @ my friends home in Nonthaburi. Mainly local Thais visit Wat Samphran so therefore this Wat was quiet and serene. Many nuns chanting during afternoon. I will definitely visit Wat Sangkhathan again in near future.

Built on the site of an old wat, Wat Sanghathan is a remarkable place to visit for several reasons. First, the site is a testament to Sanong Katapunyo, the monk who built up what we see now after he became the abbot in 1979. Second, the modern Ordination Hall, built to house ancient relics, and the other wooden buildings are very well executed. Third, the carvings -- both inside and outdoors -- are imaginative and excellently done as well. Fourth, the wat has become one of the leading meditation centers in Thailand. My wife and I have visited Wat Sanghathan several times, most recently in February 2017 to celebrate the special day called Macha Bucha. A few days ago, my wife expressed her wish to spend a few months there as a nun. Wat Sanghathan is not widely known in tourist circles, but it is certainly worth making the effort to find it. The conical top of the Ordination Hall is easily seen from the Rama 5 bridge. From the bridge you can take a taxi in just five minutes to the site.

Wat Sangkhathan is a fabulous teak temple with wonderful wood carvings. Located in a remote area near the Chao Phraya River (but not on it), the place is a bit difficult to find. Visitors coming by car should make a U-turn under the Rama V Bridge on the west side of the river and then make a left turn and follow signs to the wat. The temple grounds are huge and the temple is a fascinating complex of wood carvings and architecture. Massive teak support pillars are intricately carved with representative figures of the world's main religions and countries. If you look carefully, you will find some wonderfully amusing wood carvings that illustrate the sense of humor of the carvers (e.g., see if you can find the carving of one monkey poking a finger in the butt of another monkey!). A surprisingly amusing and relaxing spot close to Bangkok! And.... it's free!

I visited the temple for three weeks as part of a solo South Asia trip. I couldn't recommend the experience more highly - the attention I received as a European traveler was interesting though for the most part I was treated as any other visitor. The monks took the time to meet with me to explain the thinking behind what we were doing every day and everyone was incredibly accepting. Left feeling refreshed, calmer and with a deeper understanding of the vipassana meditation method.
