Wat Yannawa, Bangkok

3.9




Wat Yannawa (Thai: วัดยานนาวา) is an old Buddhist temple (wat) dating back to the Ayutthaya period, located in the Sathon district of Bangkok on Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok, Thailand. It has a unique junk shaped chedi and viharn built by King Rama III. The idea behind the construction was that Chinese junk was quickly disappearing and the pagoda should show present descendants what it looked like. The temple was originally known as Wat Khok Khwai (วัดคอกควาย; "temple of the buffalo stable") during Ayutthaya era and Wat Khok Krabue (วัดคอกกระบือ) during Thonburi and early Bangkok era before the construction of the chedi.
