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.

  • Go to Rattanagosin exhibition first, then make a reservation for tour, then coming back to the amazing metal castle ( the only metal castle left). Worth to walking around, the best shot is at the 3rd floor from the Rattanagosin exhibition.
  • An old temple that isn't as well known as sone others nearby but is well worth visiting
  • 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.
  • The architecture of this place is quite striking, even if it's not very old. There are explanations inside, both in Thai and in English.
  • One of the most unique temple in Bangkok.
