My favourite temples and shrines in Bangkok.

The temple (called a "wat" in Thai) is a holy place, and there are specific rules to be observed on temple grounds. Read more about do and don't in a Thai temple on the Sidebar >>>

Wat Saket (Golden Mount) (วัดภูเขาทอง - วัดสระเกศ ราชวรวิหาร)

Wat Saket looks like a fairy tale, especially in the evenings with all the lights on. The temple is on a small man-built hill and an easy climb. Your reward will be a view of old Bangkok, including the Royal Grand Palace. The mountain itself is used as a burial ground for urns, so don't forget to walk around its base to have a look.
