This temple is well know amongst the Thai people for funeral purpose, but also for paying respect and wishing good luck for anniversaries or other occasions. Peaceful during the day time and busy in the evening.

Beutiful temple of Buddha, with mirror mosaic tiles exterior, designer glass windows, beautiful thai architecture and windchimes. The crematorium is just beside! Even the deady body burning furnaces are enclosed in very beautiful structure. Just outside ekamai sky train station on sukhumvit road.

This beautiful Temple is popular among the locals in the neighborhood. It is very traditional and it is located in the heart of Ekkamai walking steps from the BTS.

The temples in this area have gorgeous glass mosaics on the outside of the buildings. There is also a funeral boat in one of the buildings. And a great drum in another.

Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor

hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in
one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared
to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While
great for a night out, the area is nothing short of
interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix
