The Buddha inside is 26 feet high on lotus seated position. The temple and grounds are lovely and so peaceful. There are benches on the grounds to relax in the shade. The giant swing was interesting.

A temple different from those around and well worth visiting. Easy to access. We caught a river ferry then walked.

During our trip to Thailand, we went to the most beautiful temples and religious places, because the energy and culture that you can absorb from these places are so good. Regarding the different Budas and theirs meanings are so interesting

One of the main temples in the city is really beautiful and very peaceful once inside the walls of the temple. Just outside you find the surprising Giant Swing

Splashes of rain could not dampen this visit. So many Buddha - so many blessings - so many exquisitely worked objects of art.

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
