Chee Chin Khor Temple in Bangkok

Not many foreign visitors to Bangkok will have heard of the Chee Chin Khor Temple but a great many will have seen its magnificent 8 storey Chinese style pagoda on the western bank of the Chao Phraya River, opposite the China Town District of Bangkok. The pagoda is a prominent landmark easily visible from boats travelling along this stretch of the Chao Phraya River.

Chee Chin Khor Temple has been developed by a private charitable group, the Chee Chin Khor Moral Uplifting Society, which was formed in 1952. The Society provides practical assistance to poor people in Bangkok and disseminates Buddhist teachings by handing out pamphlets. The Chee Chin Khor Temple moved to its current riverside location in 1993 and the pagoda, officially named the Mahathat Chedi Prajonchatri Thai-Chin Charoen, was opened in 2001 to coincide with the 70th birthday of King Rama IX.

Visitors can ascend all 8 levels of the pagoda via a staircase. As well as panoramic views over Bangkok from the top of the pagoda, there are statues on all each level of Chinese deities and the Lord Buddha. The main temple building near the pagoda is also interesting. It features four altars with representations of the Lord Buddha along with various Taoist Chinese deities. On the second floor of the temple there is a shrine room designed to look like the inside of a cave with six bronze statues of Chinese holy men.
