  • Is made known and the temple is I look is the Church. But feel the gap at the sight and take a peek inside and Buddhist monks who have read the sutras, is interesting. Had become stained-glass Windows. I think one is worth a look. On the other side of the bang PA-in Palace and amusing ropeway is located at the back of the parking lot. Could you move if you ride alone. Is free, but as alms in the Offertory box a little give please donate. Please stop by so I can go and visit some 30 minutes and trains or to afford.

  • Love this place. This is my favorite temple. I was so impressed by the mixture of western and eastern architecture that I have never seen somewhere else!!
  • Good stop at Ayutthaya. Thai temple mixed with western church style. It located opposite Bang-pa-in but you have to take the electric-basket to across the river to the temple.
  • Very different temple, can't miss. In a quiet island, using excited way to reach there. Good people, nice place, beautiful architectures, it looks not like a normal temple. But it's peaceful as all, keep faith and the shape doesn't matter.
  • Just across the river from Bang Pa-In Palace, on a peaceful island . You can get across the river on a tram system. Very beautiful temple. Very European style architecture.
  • Definitely a must visit if you happen to visit the Bang PanIn Royal Palace. Wat Niwet Thammaprawat is located on an island on the Chao Phraya River, which is just opposite of the palace. Key features: 1. Access via cable car This could be the only temple in the world that is accessible via cable car. Free. 2. The temple is disguise as a church. Free entrance but donation welcome. This Royal temple is very beautiful. It is very interesting to see the blend of Western, Thai and Buddhist culture elements in this Wat Niwet Thammaprawat. 3. Very beautiful river view.
