  • Yet another beautiful Wat in Bangkok. This one's a lot in the open as compared to other temples that tend to be secluded. Should be worth one picture and then you're off. 
  • very nice to see, very lose to democracy monument and khao san road. nice to do pictures there. the place is used in many historical thai movies. 
  • In the world there are only three Buddhist temples like this: its structure sums up the path of the believer who gradually frees himself from the chains materials, ascends to a greater awareness to finally reach nirvana. When I visited it I was the only Westerner and a cleric was entertaining a class of students in a surreal atmosphere.
