#4 in the list of 10 Must-See Temples in Bangkok is Wat Saket. The temple where you can visit the unmistakable golden Chedi of 'Phu Khao Thong'or the Golden mountain. Built on top of a high hill in the old city of Bangkok, this massive construction has a long and troubled history. Built first by King Rama III (1787–1851), the first attempt failed and the chedi collapsed because of the soft nature of the ground and the construction was abandoned. The golden chedi you see today was built during the reign of King Rama IV and Rama V and is actually built on the remains of the original one. 300 steps lead to the top terrace and to the chedi containing a relic of Buddha brought from India.

The largest golden buddha in the world is found in Bangkok. To be axact, at Wat Traimit in Bangkok Thailand's Chinatown. This temple looks good in photo but even mire impressive in person. So I suggest go food-crawl in Chinstoen and end uo visiting Wat Traimit. Happy travels!!!
Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, previously known as Wat Leng Noei Yi, is the largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in #Bangkok, #Thailand. Tip: Difficult to find so make sure you bring your map or you online map handy.
One of the 10 Temples to See in Bangkok by travel website www.bangkok.com. Wat Traimit is an elegant multilevel white and gold temple located at the very beginning of Yaowarat road, making it a perfect starting point for a Chinatown exploration. The main attraction on Wat Traimit is not only its beautiful architecture, but the immense buddha made of solid gold seated inside, the largest of this kind in the world.

If it is your 1st time in a country, I see nothing wrong with going to places where everybody goes. I think it is impotant that you know your A B C before you can even think of digging deeper. The touristy places, though could be annoying because of the crowd, could introduce you to the highlights of what a country can offer. There is time for an off-the-beaten-path when you return again. #WatPho #Bangkok #Thailand
This in front of Wat Pho where one can find the giant reclining Buddha. 2nd time here and this time only few people so I got to enjoy it more. It's always better less the crowd. ^^ #Bangkok #Thailand

10 Must See Temples in Bangkok accdg to ww.Bangkok.com #6. Loha Prasat Bangkok has no lack of majestic temples, all more elegant and impressive than the next, but Loha Prasat really stands out with its unique architectural identity. Also called the 'Metal Castle', Loha Prasat is located on the ground of Wat Ratchanaddaram and was submitted to UNESCO in 2005 to become a world heritage site, highlighting the historical importance of the temple. However this title hasn't yet been given. Located very near Wat Saket and the Democracy Monument, it's a must-see if you happen to be around Khao San Road.
