3.8
#25 of 48 in Historic Sites in Bangkok
Wat Yannawa is an old Buddhist temple dating back to the Ayutthaya period, located in the Sathon district of Bangkok on Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok, Thailand. It has a unique junk shaped chedi and viharn built by King Rama III. The idea behind the construction was that Chinese junk was quickly disappearing and the pagoda should show present descendants what it looked like. The temple was known as Wat Khok Khwai during Ayutthaya era and Wat Khok Krabue during Thonburi and early Bangkok era before the construction of the chedi.

    Must be seen, because it's nice, because it's interesting, for culture. Reaching it is not complicated. You must wear appropriate clothing!

    Walking to the saphan Taksin station is a large temple came into sight on the left hand because I entered the environment. Then a mysterious building a stupa to the boat-shaped. It was found that read the description of the English and Chinese boat-shaped. Building opposite the pagoda was placed where the White Goddess. It is a Buddhist image its name into a huge fireball. It would probably have made of marble.

    Certainly one of the points that you should run to if one is nearby. The atmosphere absorb and reflect. More but not therefore rather a complimentary 4.

    Nice temple but at the moment the main temple is been renovated. One part of the temple is in the shape of a boat. One of the main attractions at the temple is that you can feed the fish in the river to bring you good luck

    I think this temple for marine or ocean. There are many kinds of Buddha in temple. Good temple.

    The difference of this temple is the featured of the ship building. It was built in the reign of the King Rama III. It's situated near the BTS Saphan Taksin and the Sathon Pier.
