Owner description: The Loha Prasat is an amazing building with an iron roof made of 37 spires signifying the 37 enlightenment virtues of Buddhism. It is listed on wikitravel - http://wikitravel.org/en/Bangkok/Rattanakosin#b, but ought to be available to Trip Advisor visitors.

Wat Arun, one more important temple you must go is Loha Prasat, with castle style, very unique in Bangkok. The colour of the tower is white and black, and plenty of small towers in the main tower. very nice tour with a friendly tour guide

We took riverboat Klong San Saeb to end station Phan Fa Lilat.
We went first to Golden Mount (Wat Saket) and started then our tour : Loha Praset direct behind, passing little bridge : Wat Thepthidaram. From here passing City hall and Giant Swing and visit Wat Suthat. Finally we went to Talad Pak Klong , flowermarket, but there are lots of other options.

With all the protests that have been happening in Thailand lately, this temple has become a haven for those resting - the place was full of people sleeping in many of the open spaces.

This occupation of the temple detracted somewhat from the experience.

You will be the only ones in this temple when you visit it. No one knows about it. It is not on any tour bus schedule, and is a little challenging to find.

The structure itself is a grid of hallways each opening to the outside. At the end of each hallway is a view of one of the many spires on each side of the building. As you climb the stairs to each successive floor, the views of the spires change, and you will experience something of an optical illusion.

Along the hallways are many opportunities to meditate, prompted by inspiring Buddhist themes. I'm not a Buddhist, but I found myself deep in reflection at many of the stations.

I'm looking forward to visiting Loha Prasat again on my next visit to Bangkok.
