Wat Mangkon Kamalawat in Bangkok
Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, also known as Wat Leng Noei Yi, is located on a side street off the Charoen Krung Road, which is one of the major roads in Bangkok’s China Town district. Wat Mangkon Kamalawat was founded in the early 1870s and is the main temple for the Chinese tradition of Mahayana Buddhism in Bangkok, which is a different branch of Buddhism to one the commonly practiced in Thailand, which is Theravada Buddhism. Wat Mangkon Kamalawat is free to enter and is open everyday from 08:00 to 18:00.
Wat Mangkon Kamalawat is different to other major Thai Buddhist temples in Bangkok, such as Wat Po and Wat Suthat Thepwararam, in a number of ways which makes this temple well worth visiting even if you have visited a large number of other better known and more popular temples in Bangkok. Wat Mangkon Kamalawat is an atmospheric destination with lots of different shrines spread through several different rooms. The temple itself is something of a maze with statues of the Lord Buddha as well as other deities from the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, Taoism and Chinese folk religions. Depending upon which source you refer to, there are 50 to 60 different deities represented at this temple. Wat Mangkon Kamalawat is an active place of worship rather than a tourist attraction and the number of people at the time engaged in prayer or ancestor worship or other religious practice far outweighs the number of foreign tourists which in many ways adds to enjoyment of visiting this temple.
