  • I see some reviews here mentioning prices. I guess that applies when you go upstairs the temple (2nd flr); from what ive heard from a fellow traveler waiting for her turn, that was the difference. Two...  more »
  • Wat Bang Phra Temple, when a Wat receives the temple category, is that most six monks, but said Temple has a special relevance since the monks are savvy and make tauajes in concrete Sak Yank (blessed tattoo) or (blessed) are of a very high respect for the Thai, so it is better to Westerners do not consider it as an ornament custom community If it is that you choose to ask for one, they have great significance that comes from more than 2,000 years in

  • To complete Anglo-Saxon reviews that have been a great help (thank you), here is my personal experience from this temple, first I went to Bangkok by train (station hua lamphong) to the town of nakhon pathom. (Nakhon boiler is another solution): bath 60. The journey between the city and the temple is in roughly 45 minutes: I do by taxi is 200 baht. At the temple, the complex is quite huge and beautiful. The first stalls of offerings will all lead to a first small temple where they will tell you to get on the floor (upstairs)... After reading a lot of comments on this floor (they bring with them all the tourists with a special rate), I decided not to go. So I continued my tour of the complex. Up to found a slack of talismans (on the right at the bottom, after the building of the toilet). The monk told a room right next to the slack and I could do tattooed by a monk for 100 baht (offering + 25 baht). Offerings with the bath 25 are put in a golden plate, will you give to the monk, when you give, don't loose not the plate, as he begins to bless the offering, then it will put the 25 baht in a box provided for. The tattoo was done quickly 10-15 min. I showed him ahead the design (there are 108 sak aving). After the end, monk made a prayer / kata / mantra. Don't forget to thank him and the universe. That was long enough but I know you will use to some people.

  • Have been dreaming about this day for a long time. Woke at 5am and got taxi from Bangkok. Arrived and there were already 7 people in front of me. 1st man got is Sak Yant with traditional stick. Then another monk came in and started tattooing everybody with a tattoo gun. Bearly gave a blessing no gold left on tattoo afterwards. Other monk left. I was so gutted I left without getting one.
  • nice temple,peacefull environment.good energy and positive envinroment, humble monk that does blessed tattoo sincerely with only paid by our offering to them and donation to the temple.
  • Have received several tattoos. Great experience. Highly recommend.
  • Temple of pass away lor phor phun. Famous for his amulet sitting on the tiger.
  • I've got my first Thai traditional tattoo in this temple. peaceful place.
