Wat Intharawihan in Bangkok


Wat Intharawihan
Bangkok

Wat Intharawihan houses one of the biggest Buddha images you are likely to see - at 32 metres tall and 11 metres wide, it totally dominates the skyline. Construction of this giant Buddha started in 1867 and took to 1927 to complete, spanning the reigns of King Rama IV to King Rama VII. The Buddha's topknot contains relics of The Lord Buddha and the topknot and forehead are covered with gold leaves placed there by the current royal family. People pray to the Buddha image in the belief that they will be blessed with success. Although grand it stature, and clearly impressive, the temple itself has little in the way of attraction. If you are not in Bangkok for an extended period, if you have seen the Buddha from a distance, a special visit to the temple might not be necessary.

Details: Wat Intharawihan is open from 08:30 to 20:00

The following buses will get you there:
