It's a sacred pilgrimage site and is one of the city's oldest temple. Located at the top of the mount, it has a 360° view of Bangkok. A little bit of strength was necessary to reach the top as there are 344 steps to walk uphill. It's worth the effort though as the panoramic view there was promising.

The temple was served as a crematorium in late 18th century and the ashes of the plague victims were buried its base. The surrounding neighborhood is known as the Ghost Gate. It's quite spooky.

Around the temple, there were lots of statues providing quite fruitful photo opportunities.

My wife and I stumbled upon Wat Saket while visiting Bangkok on our honeymoon, and even though it was a rough uphill walk in the searing Thailand heat, the views of the city from the top were well-worth the hike! In contrast to the other wats we visited, this one had a more jungle vibe leading up to the temple, which was a nice contrast.

I thought it was just another temple in Bangkok however for me this was a bit special as it has a significant view from the top. This is a great place to visit to get lovely views of the old city, you can see Wat Arun, Wat Pho and The Grand Palace. There is no official entrance fee- but a donation is expected and you cannot miss the box . Superb place

The walk to the top is long, but beautiful. There are statues and waterfalls along the way. Be ready to walk up steps!
Down below, there are coffee shops and a few more temples. Theres a huge Buddha statue hidden underneath and I recommend seeing it!

This is a lovely place, the steps up to the top arent too steep and gently slope up the hill. Lots of things to look at on the way up and places where you can stop if you need to. The view from the top is stunning and the inside of the temple is beautiful.
