Wat Ratchabophit

Secret splendour

Photo of Wat Ratchabophit, , Bangkok

What we say: 4.5 stars

Sitting just east of the Grand Palace, the temple shows off its Chinese influence through magnificent shimmering Chinese tiles that cover every exterior wall. Ornately gilded and mother-of-pearl inlaid doors add to the splendour of this quiet spot. The temple itself is incredible, but the grounds are also a peaceful perk ripe with shady spots to sit and marvel at the incredible architecture.

Built under Rama V, the temple's unusual design features a chedi enclosed by a circular cloister and then linked to the bot and viharn. Understated but gorgeous Wat Ratchabophit is highly recommended.
