It's a very unique temple! The architecture is awesome and it's very close to the city center! Definitely a must see sightseeing...

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Sadly there was building work going on when we visited but the best view was from the river at night when all signs of scaffolding were obliterated

“Another must see for Bnagkok Temples”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Another Temple to tick of the list in Bangkok, they are just stunning, and so colourful. For me the age of these monuments, and the care taken over them to keep them good, is fantastic.

“Cool, but Creepy.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

This was a must see, but Im not going to lie, it was a little creepy climbing the steepest and highest stair case ever. Literally made me cry trying to come down because I was so scared. However, we cannot discredit the beauty and history, not to mention architecture of this site. It was truly breathtaking. All I'm saying is, if you dont like heights, it might not be for you.
