Beautiful and different from other temples, as it was made from Italian marble. Entrance fee is 50 Baht so not expensive. Be aware of the dress code and leave your shoes at the entrance. If you only have time to visit 5 temples in Bangkok, surely put this one on your list. Not as busy as some of the others, so more peaceful.
Very peaceful and beautiful architecture Clear and quiet place 5 baht temple
