Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara (Loha Prasat) Tours

While not the most famous of Bangkok’s many temples, Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara, also known as Loha Prasat (Metal Palace), is notable for its unique architecture; multiple concentric squares levels were built atop pillars to resemble the mythical castle of the gods of the same name. The 37 all-metal spires symbolize the 37 virtues that lead to enlightenment, and when illuminated at night, they resemble candles adorning a multi-tiered cake.

Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara was built in 1846 by order of Rama III, its architecture inspired by two similar temples in India and Sri Lanka. Bangkok’s version is the only one of the three remaining. Since 2005 the temple has been under consideration for UNESCO World Heritage status.

Outside the temple, a market teems with vendors selling amulets to protect against harm or to offer good fortune in love.

Practical Info

Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara is located very close to Bangkok’s famous Khaosan Road, so there’s no excuse not to visit if you’re already in the area.
