“Good, if you have not much else to do”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

A decent little attraction, with a nice climb and some good views, but there is precious little here to keep you interested once you get past the way it looks.

“Not a must”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

It is an important temple but not very impressive to the tourist. You climb to the top you get a view of suburban Bangkok, also not a must

“lovely place”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

A very nice place to visit. You go up the steps to the top and there is a nice view of Bangkok. the children really enjoyed the bells that you can ring along the way. Also when you come back down they provide free drinks and food! it was a noodle and chicken soup which was really nice. Its a place to visit if you just have that little extra time..only need an hour or so here.

“Awsome view, nice temple”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Amazinng view over Bangkok, quiet location. Nice temple where you can feel the atmosphere of a real buddhist temple. Nice walk to climb to the top of the hill, and the view worth it.
Amust see, and one of the peaceful points you will be surprised to find in such a busy city as Bangkok.
