Wat Suthat

Featuring Thailand's largest bronze Buddha

Photo of Wat Suthat, , Bangkok

What we say: 3 stars

Large and airy feeling, the wat's grounds are fairly big with some cute buildings and beautiful corridors to explore.

Construction on the wat began in 1807 during the reign of King Rama I and once completed, he requested that an important Buddha image, the Phra Sisakayamunee from Wat Mahathat in Sukhothai, be displayed here. The image is Thailand's largest cast bronze image and is believed to have been cast in 1361.

Plenty of interesting shops stocking religious paraphernalia dot the surrounding neighbourhood and are sites in and of themselves.
