Wat Hua Lumphong Reviews
It’s quite comfortable and easy to visit with family and it is beautiful place that you can visit for free. There are many things you can do for doing merit with children’s and older people. more »
Go to this temple to make a donation on coffin. It is also a blessing to give than receive. :) Easy access just make a turn from BTS exit and you can see the temple easily. more »
Horrible, yet classic example of exploiting their religion to rake in the cash. 40b for "foreigner" just to go into the temple is outrageous. As if only Thai people could possibly be buddhist. And every little thing costs cash. I've travelled the whole country and donated thousands of baht to temples that are far more worthy than this trap. Find somewhere else that's actually got some spirituality left.
Easy access by MTR, traditional Buddhist temple, including the funeral facilities. Used to have animals to feed for making merit.
