Wat Yannawa, Bangkok
Wat Yannawa is an old Buddhist temple 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 known as Wat Khok Khwai during Ayutthaya era and Wat Khok Krabue during Thonburi and early Bangkok era before the construction of the chedi.Put Wat Yannawa into our Bangkok trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bangkok.
