Wat Kalyanamit

Recommended
Founded in 1825 by Rama III, Wat Kalyanamit is one of the five temples built by the king in Bangkok. As you enter the temple garden, note the huge bronze bell - the largest in Thailand - which is housed under a white pavilion. The main wihan here is home to a huge seated Buddha. The style of the octagonal chedi and the many statues dotted around the sanctuary bear witness to Rama III's enthusiasm for Chinese art.
