Most people seem to miss that there are two temples on this site, The main one is impressive, but the one at the back is truly amazing and the best we saw whilst in Bangkok. A must do visit, and best of all it was deserted not busy like the others

Came on a rainy day no big crowds and the time spent was un-rushed and informative. I enjoyed the varies styles of Buddhas on display.

Amazing place bang in the heart of Bangkok it is supremely preserved and a real treat to eyes it also gives an insight as how deeply cultures of Asia are connected and India is the focal point of that connect.

It is a very nice temple. What I enjoyed most are the beautiful paintings on the inside walls. There are two buildings in this temple complex and both have nice paintings.

If you'd like to find a temple that's off the beaten path and not terribly busy, this is a lovely visit. It seems a bit weird to rate a temple - after all it's a place of worship but if we are talking about the experience from a tourist's viewpoint, I would say it's nowhere near the scope of some...

This is where you would see the large statue of the lying Buddha, only cost 100 THB (3.5USD). Bring water, even the ticket includes one bottle of water. Most of the building are not well maintained, old, paints peeled off quite a bit, no one bothers you as you stroll the area just to observe, take photos, sweat like a... More

This temple is less known so you will have a more peaceful time wandering around it. I enjoyed it more than the other temples.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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 Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
