Dhammakarama Burmese Temple and Wat Chaiya Mangalaram Temple

Intricate and worth a look

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

These two temples on Lorong Burma lie across the street from each other. The lane and Burmese temple date back to the early 19th century when there was a Burmese village in the area. Wat Chaiya Mangalaram is a Thai temple, constructed much later, with a 33-metre reclining Buddha inside, one of Asia's longest. The workmanship on the pink lotus floor tiles is just as stunning here as on the intricate glittering gold roof of the Dhammakarama temple.
