The temples in Bangkok are strongly influenced by Buddhism which take up the greater part of Thailand as far as religion is concerned. These temples have become a central part to the cultural and architectural scene in the country and are recognized as some of the best tourist spots. In Bangkok, the most known and celebrated temples are the ones located at the banks of Chao Phraya river – Wat Arun, located on the west part, and Grand Palace and Wat Pho on the east side. All are about few minutes away from each other, whether on foot or by ferry. Read further on my blog for the details of each temple.
