Not so high, but very interesting temple in Bangkok. Outside on the courtyard is many different statues of Budha. For us it is very interesting to look aroud and see image of Budha

It is a modern Temple and is considered to be the most beautiful for Thai people because it is constructed from Carrara marble. Nothing too impressive especially for Europeans. However, it is a typical sample of Thai architecture for those interested. It also contains more than 5o bronze statues of Buddhas from different countries and regions. Very interesting collection.Monks living there don't go out seeking food instead people come to the Temple to take care of them, that's why you find many tables on a covered place of the terrasse. In here you can hear monks chanting early morning.

This place is beautiful to look at from the outside. Other than that I didn't see it as anything special. Glad we saw it. But wouldn't go back and probably would put it on the must see list for anyone else visiting Bangkok.

This is a very nice temple with a lot of monks, if you are lucky you could see an initiation monk ceremony, it is something special.
