This is a very special and stunning beautiful temple. Wat Bowonniwet is a harbour of peace in the middle of the city of angels. The late King Rama IV. was ordained a monk here. Come here to pay respect to Lord Buddha and the ashes of the late King Rama IV. - the monks here are very friendly and helpful so if You want to learn about Buddhism and Thai culture this is a good place to go and maybe chat with the monks.
A nice Temple to visit and pay respect to the Buddha , clean, and well maintained. Lots of visitors today on our Sunday visit
Traditional and beautiful customs well maintained by this temple. Good traditional local old city residential area around.
famous thai trmple where many thai kings/princes ordained as a monk.
Holy place that has so much meaning to Thai people
Nice wat, though if you want more quiet and cozy place you should go to another temple. But still, it is worth a visit. Statues and architecture is mostly the same as everywhere else. But it has some kind of special atmosphere.
Despite the closer K road, I could still feel the good vibes of the temple, there are a few building to visit. Dont miss out this temple if you are near by, worth the time.
Very nice temple, not too big and close to Khaosan Road. Here the last King Rama 9 Bumibhol Adulyadei spent some time as a monk. Clean toilet. Friendly monks answer your questions. Interesting and special about this temple are the blood-mouthed temple guards at the entrance doors.
Peaceful and claim among the chaos around here. This is high class temple. So, every building such as pagoda or church are well decorated. Even in sunny day, super hot weather out there, but here is just shady and greenery.
I am a monk here for 15days for mind and body cleansing. The chief monks teach new monk the basic level ofThe Lord Buddha teaching and his enlightenment. Two great buddha statues stand in front of you as you enter the main Ubosot building. Underneath the great statues are King Rama 4, Rama 6 and late Rama 9 ashes or urns. Come in and pay respect to our Lord Buddha and our beloved pass away Kings
If you happen to walk pass by this temple and the auditorium is open that day, get inside to feel the vibe. You will understand what I mean.
