Wat Mangkon Kamalawat (Thai: วัดมังกรกมลาวาส, pronounced [wát māŋkɔ̄ːn kāmālāːwâːt]), previously (and still commonly) known as Wat Leng Noei Yi (Thai: วัดเล่งเน่ยยี่, pronounced [wát lêŋ nɤ̂j jîː]; simplified Chinese: 龙莲寺; traditional Chinese: 龍蓮寺; pinyin: Lónglián Sì), is the largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. It hosts celebrations of a number of year-round events, including Chinese New Year, and the annual Chinese vegetarian festival.
It is located in the district of Pom Prap Sattru Phai in the city's Chinatown, in a courtyard off Charoen Krung Road, accessed by an alleyway. It is served by Wat Mangkon MRT station located in front of the temple.

A Chinese Buddhist temple in Chinatown, Bangkok. Very beautiful decorations, very open - you can just walk in and participate if you want, or watch the monks and visitors.

A Buddhist Temple in Chinatown, Bangkok Typical Chinese Buddhist Temple. Busy with lots of smoke from the incense so people will respiratory issues like asthma may want to stay outside. Close to the new MRT station in Chinatown which is scheduled to open later this year. Within walking distance to several eateries and walking streets.

I was here on the Chinese New Year, which made the experience very special. But even on other days, this place should be worth the visit. It felt very local and seriously buddhist (if that makes sense). It's a Chinese temple though, so quite different from others in Thailand
