Temples and China Town in Bangkok

China Town Bangkok

Today we went to a Chinese temple in China Town without knowing what to expect. As we walked out of the metro station it became clear to us, we really liked the neighbourhood. But first things first we went to the temple called Wat Mangkon Kamalawat. This temple was built in 1871 by Sok Heng. The original name of the temple was Wat Leng Noei Yi, but it was changed by King Rama V. The front of the temple was under construction, but the inside was still wonderful to see. It is very different from the other temples in the area. It looked like the temples we had seen in Malaysia.

After we visited the temple, we went into Chinatown itself. The market was really big, with a lot of people and a lot of stands. Normally there are a lot of the same stands. Here we saw a lot of different ones. This is what we expected of Bangkok and we really liked it.

Golden Buddha

Golden Buddha is a statue of a golden buddha inside of an old palace we think. The Buddha statue was on top of the building. There was also an exhibition, but you had o pay separately to get in. Because we already walked a long time, we decided to only enter the Buddha. You can find information about the exhibition in the link below.
