It is located on Rama IV Road, with Si Lom Road and Suriwong Road in Bangkok's modern business district to the southeast, and Si Phraya Road to the northwest. It is a block from The Montien hotel, and approximately 1 km from the city's main Hua Lamphong railway station. An entrance to Sam Yan Station on the Bangkok metro is located outside the main entrance to the temple compound on Rama IV road.
Wat Hua Lamphong was renovated to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ascension to the throne of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) in 1996. The royal seal of what became known as the Kanchanapisek, or Golden Jubilee, year, showing two elephants flanking a multi-tiered umbrella, features extensively in the temple's remodelling.
Inside the temple compound, the ubosot and viharn are unusual in being raised on a one-story high platform, accessed by a wide staircase. The platform also supports the temple's chedi.
The compound in front of and below the ubosot platform is home to a number of shrines dedicated to important Thai Buddhist figures, including King Chulalongkorn (Rama V), and the Hindu god Ganesha.

Also please by all means fit the hand. Areas in the Interior of the temple has predominantly used in the funeral, there are many who attended. Let's not forget because it is the Temple of central consideration for local people.
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.
