Wat Yannawa in Bangkok

Wat Yannawa is a very old temple, founded during the Ayutthaya Period (1350 to 1767), which is located near to Taksin Bridge and Saphan Taksin BTS station in Bangkok. If you are in the area, possibly waiting for a river boat at the nearby Sathorn Boat Pier, then it well worth taking a few minutes to visit this very unusual temple.

Opening Hours and Admission Fees

Wat Yanawa is open every day from 08:00 to 18:00 and admission is free.

Building Shaped Like a Chinese Junk

What is unusual about Wat Yannawa is that the prayer hall has been built in the shape of a Chinese sailing ship, often referred to as a ‘junk’. The structure is around 40 metres long and features two chedi pagodas where the mast of a normal ship would be.

King Rama III

This peculiar structure was constructed in the early 19th Century under the patronage of King Rama III. Wat Yanawa is located in the banks of the Chao Phraya River and it is believed that the King wanted to create a monument commemorating the Chinese sailing ships which for centuries had been a fundamental part of the nation’s economy. The timing of the creation of the monument coincided with a period when sailing ships from China were rapidly being replaced by steam paddlers.
