Second largest outside India

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

The entrance is difficult to spot from Chakraphet Road, but those who make the effort will be rewarded by seeing a side of Thailand most don't even know exists.

You can ask one of the men hanging around the lobby if you can go upstairs. Both men and women receive an orange cloth to cover their heads and shoes come off.

The sixth floor is the main prayer area, and has a copy of Sikhism's holy book, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, on a flower-filled altar. The world's 23 million Sikhs treat the text with the same reverence as a guru, or small god.

The next floor up is full of reading rooms where you can usually find Sikhs busy reciting the 1530-page tome.

Travellers are welcome to share in a free vegetarian breakfast on the second floor on every day.
