“Nice Miniature”
Review of Mini Angkor Wat

Mini Angkor Wat
Ranked #111 of 573 things to do in Bangkok
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 20, 2013

*) Miniature of Angkor Wat, the largest Hindu temple in the world.
*) This model is located on the side of the Emerald Buddha temple, which in itself is located in the middle of the Grand Palace, and is not a site in itself, but rather viewed when walking to the Emerald Buddha temple which is the highlight of the grand palace visit. On the way to the temple you will see it.
*) There is a tunnel underneath the model which can be crossed for good luck.
*) While the attention to detail is amazing and it's well worth spending a few minutes admiring if you are already in the Royal Palace compound
*) The attention to detail was absolutely stunning and was amazed at the replica, which is hidden behind the stairs leading to one of the temples near the entry of the Grand Palace/ Wat Phra Kaew complex.
*) As the Grand Palace is definitely worth visiting, make sure you seek this little side attraction out whilst there. This will only take about 5-10 minutes, but it's pretty cool if you haven't been fortunate enough to see the real deal in Siem Reap, and a novelty photo shoot if you have. (NB: Allow half a day to see everything within the Grand Palace, but you could spend a whole day.)
*) My verdict - Must-See.

just an amazing place, small version of Angor Wat complex from Kambodia. Easy and cheap to visit while in Bangkok.

If you have time go to siem reap (Cambodia) to visit the real one, but less people in the mini angkor wat that the positive thing!!

Having been to the real Angkor Wat, I can’t decide if this amazing little model in Bangkok’s Grand Palace should be seen before or after the real thing.
For before, the model is impressive and certainly has a huge amount of detail, and it might just convince a few people to see the real thing. For after, Angkor Wat’s attraction is its immense size and the history you can feel as you walk around the complex – perhaps some of this is diminished if you have studied a scale model beforehand? While it is lovely, I don’t think the model does justice to the real thing, but it is a nice reminder of your memories if you have already visited the famous Cambodian temple.
At the end of the day, the mini Angkor Wat is a very detailed model and adds value to a visit to the Grand Palace (which is already a pretty amazing place).

Can't believe the amount of detail that went into this mini ruins. Great sight to see. It's great to hold your camera down the bottom of the stairs pointing to the doorway and take a photo, looks exactly like the real thing.
