  • I was advised to come here to "fix my misfortune" (แก้ปีชง") because my Chinese zodiac, rooster, is not aligned with the zodiac Rooster (my own year). The fortune-enhancing kit cost 100 baht. I felt stupid for doing something I had never done before. However, the architecture inside temple was overall nice although not novel. In the next 2 years, an underground metro station will be ready to service visitors that want to walk around the Chinatown. This metro is constructed under the Chao Praya river.
  • Famous Chinese temple in Bangkok. In terms of its importance to the community, it is very. In terms of architecture, don't come with high expectations. Of course there will be something of interest if you have more time to walk around. But don't compare this to temples in Taiwan or mainland China, it just different scale. You don't missed anything much for not visiting. The China Town area in general is worth a walk though. Lots of food.
  • Beatifull temple. Nice to see the differences with Thai temples.
  • one of the very few Mahayana Buddhist temple in the Land of Theravada Buddhist.
  • Bcoz of u....gods.
