This temple is within an area of other temples but a visit is a must. The whole experience was moving even for our 2 sons both in their 20s.

Many tourist overlook the fact that this beautiful temple must always be respected, and at times they sit with the feet pointing towards the Buddha. Obviously they are educated and corrected about their posture. Wonderful place, and the beauty and carvings most delightful.

I stood in total amazement of the ceilings and walls covered in beautiful traditional Thai art – preserving a cultural heritage. This temple artwork alone is worth the visit.

Breath taking. Try and visit early morning when monks are praying. Very hot and humid. Dress lightly but remember to cover shoulders and knees. Very strict won't let you in.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of the backpackers paradise is another little beauty, the grounds have plenty of buildings and Stupa's to see. Once you've had a drink and something to eat whilst people watching take time to drop in here before you move on.

The temple is nice and clean. The temple is near KSR. The main hall is in the front. The small halls in the back are also beautiful.

What is there to really say? It's stunningly beautiful and the entire grounds are well kept and very serene. It's a short walk from Khaosan and easy to find.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn

most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
