Wat Suthat Overview

Wat Suthat, located in the heart of Bangkok, is a magnificent Buddhist temple that stands as a testament to Thailand's rich cultural and architectural heritage. Built in the 19th century, the temple boasts intricate designs and stunning murals, showcasing the artistic prowess of the time. The highlight is the towering red-brick arch, called the Giant Swing, standing adjacent to the temple.

Visitors to Wat Suthat, as part of Thailand packages, can marvel at the serene beauty of the temple grounds, housing a stunning chapel with a golden Buddha image. The surrounding cloisters feature over 150 Buddha images, each telling a tale of Thai history and spirituality. 

Wat Suthat, better known for the towering red Giant Swing that stands at its entrance, is one of the oldest and most impressive temples you must visit on a Bangkok tour. It features an elegant chapel with sweeping roof, magnificent wall murals, and exquisite hand-carved teakwood door panels. Located in the Old City area, just east of the Royal Field, you can easily combine a visit to Wat Suthat with Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Grand Palace, and Wat Pho.

Highlights: Wat Suthat is perhaps more famous for the Giant Swing than its impressive interior architecture, which is a must-see after the splendour of nearby Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. The cloistered courtyard, surrounding the main chapel, boasts 156 Buddha images along the outer walls and four entry gates individually hand-carved with intricate details.
