Wat Yannawa, Bangkok

3.8
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.

  • Have the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to Wat yan NAWA day prayer often hurt? To feel comfortable. Haiyakai section to solo, and many feel the chiao to wandering masters. The atmosphere inside the temple clean and quiet meditate especially hurt?

  • 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.
  • Temple next to river. Lot of tourist visit. Nice
  • Nice to walk around and see the temple. I'd would be great to have more English text (1st world problems 😊)
