Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Take in the beautiful architecture of Wat Suthat. Angular marble pillars support colorful roofs with high gables, ornately decorated in the typical Bangkok style. Marble flagstones reflect the sky, and Buddha statues adorn the walls. Wander the tranquil grounds and see the 28 Chinese pagodas, representing the 28 Buddhas born on this earth. In front of the temple, admire the 30 m (98 ft) tall Giant Swing, formerly used in an old Brahmin ceremony. A royal temple of the first grade, it's construction began in 1807, at the behest of King Rama I, but it would not be completed until 1847, during the reign of King Rama III.

  • This place was pretty neat... large statues of Buddha all over.....just looking at the art and intricacies of these statues was mind-boggling!!!!!! 
  • This temple is less known so you will have a more peaceful time wandering around it. I enjoyed it more than the other temples. 
  • There are many temples for Buddha in Bangkok and they are all a little different and well worth visiting, this one included. 
  • Wat Sunhat is a fantastic space to inflict and the main Buddha statue inside is quite special. The Mural painting is something else and also the Budda idols surrounding the main temple were amazing. Well worth a visit, you'll not be let down.
  • The extrinsic details involved in the structures are captivating. The sheer amounts of work involved in this monument is mind boggling. Take your time and look closely to fully appreciate the Thai craftsmanship at its best. Most suited for exploring at a leisurely pace.
  • What a beautiful it is! U can discover amazing place whatever u expect!
  • The wall details of the hall make the Buddha statue almost secondary.
  • Great experiance, so many areas to explore and so much space!
