Most parts of the wat are off limits due to renovation. However, you can still see the white shrines at the sides which has remarkable details on them. I hope to visit again once it's fully opened.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
