Wat Suthat, Bangkok

(4.6/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • We visited Wat Suthat after we had lunch at a nearby restaurant. The temple has two halls. The newer hall is at the back. I prefer the newer hall which has beautiful paintings on the wall. The main ha...  more »
  • It is a temple real first grade, one of ten such temples in Bangkok (23 in Thailand). The construction was started by King Rama I in 2350 BE (1807 dC). King Rama II, who helped carve the wooden doors, carried out other constructions and decorations, but the temple was not completed until the reign of King Rama III in 2390 BE (1847/48 dC). This temple contains the image of Buddha Phra Sri

  • Nice temple There are a lot of temple around the city, this one has a very nice garden and less tourists than the famous ones. Entree fee : 20 baht
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Not-be-missed temple complex, far from the massive crowds of nearby Grand Palace. An oasis of peace.
  • What a beautiful it is! U can discover amazing place whatever u expect!
