Wat Suthat

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.
