The tale of Buddha statue made out of solid gold pulled me towards the temple. But the spiritual experience was no lesser either. The history behind its close Custody under a plaster casing is equally fascinating. Certainly one of the must see in Bangkok.

The temple is near Chinatown. Entrance fee is located nearby and reasonably priced. Ladies do be informed not to wear revealing attire. Though it’s a bit small, it’s still a beautiful place to visit.
