(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Although we were kinda scammed, our driver took us here and it was very peaceful and beautiful. We met a man outside the Palace who told us the monks were praying in the palace so it was closed for th...  more »
  • Expendable is beautiful on the outside, but no enchants as much as other temples in Bangkok. Inside some "exhibitions" completely expendable and a giant staircase that takes you anywhere to do minimally worthwhile climb the whole thing.

  • Religious or non, this metal temple welcomes everyone. The history of its making is amazing and all the information you need is written in English and Thai. Spires surrounding it represents the virtues leading to Nirvana. Worth spending some time.
  • It is another impressive temple in this city museum called Bangkok!!
  • One of the most interesting temples in the city. Very different from the typical Thai temple, good to go there if you've already been to Wat Pho and Royal Palace. The color and decoration is quite distinct. The structure is symmetrical, so you can see long corridors going through the whole building while walking around. It has several levels, each one smaller than the immediately lower one. It has some educational posters explaining some principles of Buddhism. It's very quiet and there are usually very few tourists. It closes at 5:30 pm. Entrance is free.
  • Unusual design, stairs and labyrinths, Buddhist quotes. A quiet and meditative place.
  • Good picture and good for meditation and silence
