About Wat Bowonniwetwiharn Ratchaworawiharn in Bangkok

Wat Bowonniwetwiharn Ratchaworawiharn is a very important temple in the Phra Nakhon District of Bangkok, only 500 metres walking distance from the Khao San Road.

Visiting Wat Bowonniwetwiharn Ratchaworawiharn

The temple, which is open to visitors from 06:00 to 18:00 every day gets few foreign tourists despite its easy accessibility from one of the most popular areas of Bangkok. The reason is that from the outside the temple does not look particularly interesting. You would need to know a bit about the history of the temple and what is inside to know why it’s worth visiting.

History of Wat Bowonniwetwiharn Ratchaworawiharn

Wat Bowonniwetwiharn Ratchaworawiharn was founded in the early 19th Century by King Rama III. His son, Prince Mongkut, became the first abbot of the temple in 1836 where he remained until being crowned King Rama IV in 1851. During that time Prince Mongkut founded a new order of the Buddhist church which remains important in the Thai Buddhist church.
