Wat Suthat is a large monastery covering an area of
44,980 square metres that is located right at the
heart of Bangkok. The construction began during the
reign of King Rama I (1807 A.D.) and it took 27 years
to complete. Phra Sisakayamuni image from Wat
Mahathat in Sukhothai was brought to reign over
the temple, and the City of Bangkok for that matter.
Wat Suthat is a focal point for many interesting
architectural, sculptural, and visual highlights reflective
of Buddhist theme and philosophy.
. The doors and windows
of the main chapel are
individually carved with
intricate and beautiful
details. The main
doorway at the front
entrance was noted to
be the work of King
Rama II himself.
