This is a Buddhist temple located at the intersection between Ratchadamnoen Klang and Maha Chaj Road, in Bangkok. This is within walking distance from Wat Saket. Opens daily from 9am to 5pm.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

Yes, the temple entry is free and devoid of crowds as it is in a secluded place. Very peaceful to spend an afternoon at the temple. Walk up to the fifth storey to enjoy awesome views of the city.
