Wat Chakrawatrachawat Woramahawihan Reviews & Ratings
When I went it was mostly closed up. I still got to look around most of it. There are these large towers which were cool and unexpected, though you can not enter them. There are also crocodiles in an enclosure. It is cool but probably not as impressive as you might think it would be.
Beautiful temple Wat Emerald Temple The royal monastery is in the center of the city. Neighborhood Not far from Yaowarat Road. Thai-Chinese border The business district, however, to this day. People are not aware that many people know the temple was famous in Thailand, but before the present era is a true bestseller. It is a special one. The temple is full of joy. This temple is beautiful to look like a temple. Architecture in the Khmer era. Inside the temple is a painting by a painter. Tells the story of the goddess Vessel. There are many things in the temple to praise you. The temple is in the business district. You have no car parked enough in this temple, but .... Free parking is not in the world and then. Everything for money in religious affairs. I think it's a good idea.
There were two baby crocs that were sleeping mid day. There is so e decent swag to see. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
One of my favorite places during my visit in Bangkok. I could observe monks chanting and praying inside. A must see!
Very calm and enlightening place. See the crocodiles!
