Wat Bowonniwet Vihara, Bangkok

4.7
A little off the beaten path, Wat Bowonniwet Vihara allows you to experience the religious and cultural aspects of Thailand. In fact, even the King has spent some time in monkhood here. It is usually not crowded, so you can relax and take your time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and fascinating architecture that the temple has to offer. Appreciate the intricate details and murals on the walls as well as the ornate golden Buddha statues. Entrance is free, but you will have to take your shoes off, as footwear is prohibited inside.

  • When I came to Bangkok, I always took an inn near Khao San, so I stopped by for the first time in a long time. It is a historic temple where the former king trained to go to his family, and it is characterized by two Buddha statues in the main hall. However, it was not able to be found what it was written though it examined whether it was meaningful.

  • You will not regret ambience architecture at all times. There is a drinks restaurant nearby the temple. If you get Chao, you can.
