Owner description: Built in the early 19th century to house the large 25-foot-tall Phra Sri Sakyamuni Buddha statue, this temple features the huge red frame of a giant swing once used in annual ceremonies to celebrate and thank Shiva.

I like this temple. It has unique and beautiful designs with the iconic huge Red Giant Swing at the front.

When I was there, it was quite busy and there were even few people who were doing Spiritual Retreats inside the temple. The temple is close to Bangkok City Hall and close to Khao San Rd.

The Buddha inside is beautiful. The walls are all covered in beautifully painted pictures depicting Buddha's stories. You can also make donations for various things, like electricity, books, scholarships etc Visit this temple!

The Wat Suthat is one of the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, with a large Buddha statue and mad old murals. Dozens of Buddha images are found in the temple hall, and on the site, there are many statues. Very near the Golden Mount and the Giant Swing, the Giant Swing, located, you should not forget when he visited this ancient temple.

We arrived at Wat Suthat to find local Thais in the middle of a service. The wat itself is a short walk from the Khao San Road and right next to the giant swing. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Don't forget to check out the local shops which make a wide range of buddhas for commercial sale!

It's a nice and extremly clean Wat. Near the the Chineese Swing you can find the entrance to this very well kept Wat with so many Buddhas one can't even count them. The entrance to the ticket office is hard to get to, so people with kids, do watch out. The walls closing the almost square like complex are addding to the charm of the place, one suddenly is in a quiet place in center of Bangkok.
