  • This is a very peaceful place with an unusual architecture and story. Before you go,if not with a guide, read up on the place. Take your time seeing this place. Also, you'll love the cable car.  more »

  • Ok, it looks like a Church but is actually a Buddhist Temple. If you park on the Palace side you get the chance to ride the Monk Controlled cable car, that in itself is fun, especially if there are a ...  more »

  • 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.
  • One of the most beautiful Buddhist temple in Thailand. It was built in Western style like a church yet it still has Thainess. To get there, you must cross the river using a cable car (free - donate for electricity) and get there. It's quite small and peaceful.
  • Its not easy to go! If you cannot speak Thai! So need to do enough research before! As almost no body speak English over there! Especially it may need few time to transfer from different route of mini bus/vans! But honestly people's there are so nice try to answer you or give a hand to help!
