The temple is under repair, but you can still see it. The Giant Swing is right next to it. The many many buddhas were interesting. A service was being held and we were invited to participatw which was so nice.

I was so very impressed by this temple and it artifacts. Truly a magical place. Time stands still and one can feel the history overwhelm ones being when you are there.

The central temple was under repair, but the precinct was worth it! Many beautiful hidden corners! Great place to get some shade.

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