The temple features several large buildings, including a shrine hall and an ordination hall, the most famous of which is the Loha Prasat. The Loha Prasat, or Iron Castle, is an impressive structure with 37 spires. The highest of the spires, the central spire, is 36 metres tall. The other 36 spires are arranged into two levels. The first level has 24 spires and the lower level has 12 spires. The design of the temple is believed to be based on a much larger temple in India which was constructed during the lifetime of the Lord Buddha and a second similar temple based on the first located in Sri Lanka. Neither the original temple in India or the copy in Sri Lanka exist anymore making the Loha Prasat in Bangkok the only remaining example of this architectural form.
