Wat Suthat, Bangkok
(4.6/5 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. Arrange to visit Wat Suthat and other attractions in Bangkok using our Bangkok trip generator.

  • Lots of Buddha statues to see at this temple. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful paintings, decorations and the style in which it was done. Visit this temple for an eye amazing experience. Don’t forget yo...  more »
  • Many of the temples in Bangkok are full of tourists and quite noisy but not Wat Suthat. If you real want to enjoy nice and quite surrounding and perhaps meditate a little, come to Wat Suthat. 
  • Each temple is interesting for its-but some leaves on the memory, and some are seen in the series. Van Suthat remembered tranquility, unreal silence in a noisy city, a lot of sitting Buddhas, protect our world from the evils and vices.

  • 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!
