Take a break from the packed temples and saunter off to the secluded Wat Ratchabophit. Thai Buddhist temples usually have two main parts: the monks’ living quarters and an area dedicated to Buddha. Wat Ratchabophit includes a third section where you'll find a royal cemetery.
As Thai Kings built temples to mark their reign, the cemetery houses the remains of King Chulalongkorn’s immediate family. The temple’s interiors stand out for its unique European design, with doors that feature pearls and Gothic-style masonry.
Sensō-ji (金龍山浅草寺, Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji) is an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. It is Tokyo's oldest temple, and one of its most significant. Formerly associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, it became independent after World War II.
Adjacent to the temple is a five-story pagoda, the Asakusa Shinto shrine, as well as many shops with traditional goods in the Nakamise-dōri.
When we went there there’s a lot of people. If you have kids and still riding a stroller, they have a lift so you can enter the temple.
I will recommend this place.
Missing Thailand 🇹🇭— the food, the shopping and the temples
Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is right behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha – it’s a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok.
You should also try their streetfoods— pad thai and mango sticky rice. Don’t forget to ride a tuktuk
