The temple is opposite the red giant swing and it's another royal temple. This temple is massive but it is currently under renovation. Except for the main hall, there are also different sites with stories inside the temple.

Currently during renovation which is pitiful but still, beautiful inside the main building. リノベーション中なのが残念だけど中は綺麗。 There is ashes of Rama 5 King ラマ5世の遺灰もある。 建物の中はヨーロッパの影響あり。 The decoration inside the architecture seem to have influence from western world. Beautiful decoration inside. 蝶番の細工も細かくて綺麗だ。

spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
