  • Very beautiful temple and peaceful. This is one of my favorites. The most stunning point of the temple is the white marble and the golden windows.

  • A beautiful marble temple located in the heart of Bangkok! Said to be built even before King Rama V but mainly developed during his reign. The iconic and must-never-miss view is the front temple view, which is also used in 5-baht-coin. There is an area inside the temple that use marble to make floor. So it is beautiful with white and clean feeling. It is easy to get here by bus, taxi or even drive here. There are around 20 parking lots free of charge.
  • If you happen to be in Bangkok then visiting this temple is must. It's not about religion but about place to cherish for life. We were there on a sunny day and the view was just mind-blowing. I would definitely recommend it to be part of your city tour. Place has a different charm and you feel calm with the entire surrounding. Enjoy your visit....
