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.

  • The Temple is accessed through a small door with little or no fanfare. The center piece is the Spiral Staircase which leads to the top of the Temple and gives great views over the surrounding area of ...  more »
  • Large complex seen from the top of the Golden mount, and the ground level is even more incredible. It has a very interesting history that is displayed on the first floor. Hence in advance, whenever you climb a ladder and reach the next level is a different experience, if someone like meditation this is the place. Besides being beautiful is truly spiritual and added to that which not is awash with tourists.

  • 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!!
  • A very calming place inside with a great deal of things to see - enter with respect and visit the buildings - extremely interesting - I would go again - then there were other places around it
  • a beautiful temple complex near Golden Mount and with the excellent Loha Prasat Metal Castle in its grounds

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
