This impressive giant 32 meter Standing Buddha is located on Samsen Road, Bang Khun Phrom, Phra Nakhon, close to the Rama VIII bridge crossing the Chao Phraya. Officially called Wat Intharawihan but known by all as Big Buddha, this temple is a nice spot to feel Bangkok’s vibe.

Mostly frequented by locals, quiet and peaceful setting awaits you for a relaxation time. Soon as you step inside the street gate there’re some street food stalls. Open daily 08:30 to 20:00 and Admission is free.

We went there beginning of June 2018, Buddha is under reconstruction so you can´t see much. Other than that just another big Buddha, nothing around.

Unfortunately the Standing Buddha was undergoing renovation, therefore all we could really see was a bunch of scaffolding. There was a various assortment of other Buddhas at the wat.

It could be a beautiful site to visit, but unfortunately is undergoing restoration (March 2018). You won't see anything and will only lose the 40 THB of the entrance. Please check if the works are completed before you consider visiting the site.

This temple is home to a 40-metre tall “Standing” Buddha. I believe that it would be a magnificent site to visit, but unfortunately when we were there, the monument was all covered up in scaffolding, undergoing restoration. Should you decide to visit this place anytime soon, be sure to check if the works are completed.
