Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This temple is situated in Nakhon Pathom province which not far from Bangkok. It's a very big time complex, you can spend even a day here. There is a fish pond where you can feed " Koi & Gold Fish" with a feeder... amazing experience... you just have to make a donation in the box and you can take fish feeds.. This activity is very popular among children as well as old..getting there is quiet a challenging, as there are quiet a few buses from Bangkok goes there. If you have a local friend there no problem...

I visited Wat Rai Khing in August 2017. Wat Rai Khing, a civilian monastery built in 1791, is located in Tambon Rai Khing, only 32 kilometers from Bangkok. It was named after the district by Somdej Phra Phuttha Chan (Pook). When the construction was completed, the Buddha image was brought from Wat Sala Poon and enshrined here, later the locals named the image “Luang Pho Wat Rai Khing”. According to legend, this Buddha image was found floating in the river, so the townspeople took it up and enshrined the image at Wat Sala Poon. The Buddha image features Chiang Saen style, assumed to be built by Lanna Thai and Lan Chang craftsmen.
Prince Vachirayan Varoros granted temple the name “Wat Mongkon Chinda Ram” (with the words “Rai Khing” in parenthesis after the name) but the locals call the temple “Wat Mongkon Chinda Ram Rai Khing”, later it was shortened to “Wat Rai Khing”.
The temple is well known among Thais as devoted Buddhists frequently visit Wat Rai Khing to pay homage to the sacred Buddha image so every Saturdays and Sundays, food and fruits are sold in front of the temple.
It is also renowned for a natural fish sanctuary, a habitat of hundreds of thousands of Sawai fish (big catfish-like, freshwater fishes) where visitors can buy loafs of bread to feed them.
For History enthusiasts, there is a museum collecting and exhibits various kinds of artefacts including ancient bowls, mural paintings, and old books, all of which were donated by the townspeople.
I will definitely visit Wat Rai Khing in near future.

Wat Rai Khing Buddhist Temple is a holy place that local thais go to pray during special occasions or/and on Buddha Day. I go there everytime i am back home in Thailand and this temple.
This temple plays a very important role in my life as it saw me past my darkest hours these past 3 years.
It also has many wax statues of holy monks that have passed on, a foodcourt and also some retail shops that you can purchased souvenirs of this temple.

The main Buddha in Wat Raikhing appeared centuries ago and is in Lanna style: partly perhaps due to the miracolous story of this Buddha image, the Wat attracts regular pilgrims and is a popular spot for divination and for feeding the very large fish that crowd the river at the back of the temple. Being a large complex, it has many Buddha images, as well as some beautiful Kuan Yin statues, and even the Navagraha deities (the planets). If you want to see a temple that Thai devotees really make alive, this is a good choice.

Wat Rai Khing is a famous temple in Nakhon Pathom. The atmosphere in the indoor temple is very slippery, suitable for people who want to find a peaceful place to heal the mind. The gauge next to the pier, we can feed the fish as well.

Wat Rai Khing is a place to pay respect to monks and make merit. There are many people who come to pay homage to monks and make merit. Inside the temple there is a place to take photos. There is a place to sit and eat. There is a small restaurant and drink shop located within the temple. It is a place where you come to feel comfortable, to make merit and to sit and relax.

This trip is with family. and feel that this temple has a sense of travel, with both statues of each zodiac sign and also has a canal and has a shuttle boat across This temple is not compulsory for making merit, but the strength of faith.🙏🙏

This is a big temple and is off the tourist map so is mainly used by local people.

Many experiences to savour and in my opinion it's the best temple in Bangkok

I had the opportunity to visit Wat Rai Khing recently, and it was an extremely rewarding experience. The temple is a real gem, with its magnificent architecture and peaceful gardens. I was particularly impressed by the serenity of this sacred place.
