Large scale Buddha. Very beautiful. Nothing to spend hours looking at but the little temple outside is also very beautiful and ornate. Coconut ice cream right outside was the highlight. Only 40 baht. Buddha is free!

We went to the market and accidentally saw the huge Buddha which was spectacular! A lot of locals come to pray there so we didn't stay for long. Must visit if you go to Bangkok!

The tall budda was a sight but I was more interested in the many feet of little cubbyholes holding urns. Many of the urns had photos or paintings of the person in the urn. Was just curious and interesting to me.

Wat Indra Viharn is centred around a very large and golden Buddha. The tuk tuk drivers all call it the big Buddha. Worth a visit without having the grandeur of wat Po or the emerald buddha

As far as we could tell visiting this temple was free. We did not go at a busy time, so we got some nice pictures of the very tall Buddha which we could see from our hotel room a few blocks away. There were a number of different structures around, but we made a bee line for the tall Buddha... More

A family member had wanted to consult with a monk at Wat Indharavihan and hence this visit. We took a long tail boat to a nearby pier, and walked 10 minutes to this wat. This Wat sits on quite a sizeable piece of land, and there is a 100-foot Buddha statue on site. During our visit, there were quite a... More

This 32 metre high statue is quite something! There are other statues around and it is interesting to see that people buy small pieces of gold leaf and rub them onto the statue of their choice. Another way of making an offering, apart from the usual fruit, food, flowers or incense.

This temple has a giant 100 foot Buddha statue with some Buddha relics in it. An annual temple festival is held for 10 days during the month of May. This is the time of festivities and prayers by monks. At other times, this temple is quiet as it is off the beaten track. Worth visiting for its peaceful surroundings.

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.
