Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara (Loha Prasat), Bangkok

4.5
Built for the princess granddaughter of King Nangklao in 1846, Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara (Loha Prasat) represents one of the few brazen palaces in existence (so called for the bronze roof). You will recognize the structure by its 37 metal spires rising from the roof of the multi-level building. Explore the interiors while reading quotes of virtue on the walls, and take a moment to wander the maze-like second floor. Continue to the top for breathtaking views of Bangkok.

    I love to stroll through this temple, it is always very quiet and there is some draft in the corridors. spectacular views. You can see the golden mountain. In the surroundings there are two markets of Buddhist figures and replicas at very low prices

    An old temple that isn't as well known as sone other landmarks nearby but is well worth visiting. inside the Metal Castle is a good place to learn about Buddhism, meditation and architecture

    Nice place to know better about Budha's teaching and Thai's architecture. It buildings divide into several floors that shows way to get boddhisatva. On the top floor u'll find Budha's relic and the view is good. it's FREEE. When i Went there on August 5th 2017, the roof coated by gold paint. So fabulous!!
