Wat Bowonniwet Vihara, Bangkok

4.7
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.

  • Wat bills Vihara 10 in this category, does not count while the top is believe still worth watching and perhaps even preferable to visiting the other temples, there not overflow and visitable by the way even without pay. Has to go to the temple complex on the trail of King Bumiphols, it seems like through a wormhole into a different world to be reached. Hardly any tourists, no Bangkok or Khao San noise or bustle, but peace and spirituality. Moreover, this temple complex with Buddha statues and wall paintings has its own charm. Conclusion: more than just a alternative to the top 10 temples.
