The temple with a distinctive golden pagoda on top
Just a few hundred meters north of the famous Khao San Road, you will find the little-known yet interesting and significant Buddhist temple Wat Bowonniwet Vihara. It is significant due to the fact that two Thai kings are buried here. You can locate it from afar thanks to the large golden pagoda at the top. You can hardly come across a tourist in the temple and there is no entrance fee. The area is small, but definitely worth a visit
The most distinctive part of the whole temple is the huge golden pagoda on its top. You can easily get around it from all sides
Wat Bowonniwet Vihara
The temple is built on an area of about 100×50 meters, so it is significantly less large than the more famous Bangkok shrine.
View over the roofs
From the pagoda you can see nicely through the beautifully elaborated roofs of Thai sacred buildings
Thanks to the small area, you will explore the surroundings of the temple in a short time. The best thing about the whole visit is that there are very few tourists, so you can see it in complete peace
The interior of the golden pagoda
The interior of the „golden“ pagoda is made of marble and hides other golden pagodas
A pond near the temple

A few tens of meters further east is another water channel, where turtles basked on floating wood.
