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.
How to get there
Wat Suthat is beside the Giant Swing on Bamrung Muang Rd. Bus 508 passes right nearby.
