Wat Suthat Thepwararam in Bangkok
Wat Suthat Thepwararam is an important temple in the Rattanakosin district of Bangkok near to the Grand Palace. Constructed between 1807 and 1847, Wat Suthat Thepwararam is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok. The two other notable features of the temple are its very tall prayer hall and the giant wooden swing in front of the temple. The prayer hall is very tall because it was constructed to house an 8 metre tall Buddha statue called the Phra Si Sakyamuni, which was transported to Bangkok from a derelict temple in Sukhothai. The large statue and the elaborately decorated interior prayer hall, which features murals of life in 19th Century Bangkok, make this one of the most impressive temples in Thailand which attracts large numbers of Thai visitors but not so many foreign visitors. The giant swing in front of the temple is 20 metres high and made of teak which is painted red. The original swing was installed in the late 18th Century for an annual competition which involved young men swinging from a rope attached to the top of the structure in an attempt to catch a bag of coins suspended from a long stick in their teeth. This competition ceased in the 1930s because of the large number of fatalities. The giant swing, whilst no longer used for its original purpose, is a major Bangkok landmark which has been beautifully maintained.
Wat Suthat Thepwararam is open to visitors every day from 09:00 to 18:00 and for foreign visitors there is an entrance fee of 40 THB per person.
