Kuan Oo Shrine

For history buffs

What we say: 1 star

Set on the western (Thonburi) side of the Chao Phraya River, the Kuan Oo Shrine is unremarkable save it's riverside location.

It warrants a quick stop if you're in the area, really into shrines, or are also visiting the Princess Mother Memorial Park just behind it.

Aside from worshipping here before battle, the story goes King Taksin kept stables nearby, but we imagine they're long gone.

Opening Hours: Daily
How to get there: Access is easiest from a pier out the front. The regular express boats don't stop here, so catch the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat or hire a long-tail.
