Wat Hua Lamphong, Bangkok

  • Not far from Bangkok's main business and entertainment district along Silom Road is  the temple of Wat Hua Lampong. The temple serves a large community of those that  live and work around upper Silom and Suriwong Roads, so although its not especially significant, the temple is a lively place to observe a 'real' working temple. Wat Hua  Lampong was extensively remodeled in honor of His Majesty the King's 50 anniversary  on the throne. The royal seal of the Kanchanapisek Year (as it was called) is used  extensively throughout the temple's elaborate decorations. The seal features two  elephants flanking a multi­tiered umbrella. The temple is actually quite large, and if you  wander around you will find some interesting older buildings.



    Location: Si Phraya, Bang Rak

    Getting There:  Wat Hua Lampong faces Rama IV Road right next to the Sam Yan 

    subway station. If taking the Skytrain at the Saladaeng Station, walk through Taniya  Alley, cross Suriwong Road, Rama IV will be on your right. Turn left on Rama IV and walk down about one block.
