  • This may be the most amazing temple in Bangkok. It is so majestic. The variety of things you see there is remarkable. All the bells and gongs that you can ring are wonderful. Active worship was taking place all around us and they broadcast the chants from the monks from speakers. When you get to the top, the views are priceless and the winds feel refreshing.

  • This was a very cool temple to visit. Well shaded on the way up. Plenty of activities and a beautiful service at the top. You don't have to be a Buddhist to enjoy the beauty and feeling of community when you visit. The coffee shop half way up also is reasonably priced and very comfy.

  • Stunningly beautiful temple in the heart of Bangkok. The temple is easy to find, and once you're in the gate just follow the path from the ticket kiosk up to the top. The top is filled with super interesting statues, including a Buddha statue holding a glass orb. The view from the top is very beautiful as well; I was there on a polluted day so my visibility wasn't very good, but on a clear day it is quite nice.

  • One of the highest photographs spot in Bangkok. Tourists need to pay a little fee for going up the temple. Best time will be 5-6pm. You can get sunset picture from this area. Then you can take night view while you are the temple. The main temple will light up so you can the shiny golden pargonda.

  • Beautiful surroundings. Good views. Lots of monks blessing people and lots going on. Worth a visit if you are nearby cheap as well.. about 150bhat if I remember correctly. Don't worry if you haven't got long sleeves or are wearing shorts when it's very hot the rules seem to be less strict and you can borrow a sarong/wrap skirt for only 50bhat which are all very new and clean
