Wat Bowonniwet Vihara, Bangkok
(4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
A little off the beaten path, Wat Bowonniwet Vihara allows you to experience the religious and cultural aspects of Thailand. In fact, even the King has spent some time in monkhood here. It is usually not crowded, so you can relax and take your time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and fascinating architecture that the temple has to offer. Appreciate the intricate details and murals on the walls as well as the ornate golden Buddha statues. Entrance is free, but you will have to take your shoes off, as footwear is prohibited inside. Make Wat Bowonniwet Vihara a centerpiece of your Bangkok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bangkok trip generator.

  • Had been there on our trip to Bangkok. There was peace & serenity all around. Took pics. It was a part of our city visits. 
  • one of many Buddha statues in the city, still worth visiting and taking time to relax and think for a while 
  • Really worth the Buddhist temple. As the next to the collection, although all are very similar, but each has something special.
