About Wat Suthat Thepwararam
Wat Suthat Thepwararam is one of oldest and most important temples in Bangkok. Construction of Wat Suthat Thepwararam was initiated by King Rama I of Thailand in 1782 and completed 65 years later during the reign of King Rama III in 1847. The temple is open to visitors everyday from 09:00 to 18:00 and admission costs 40 THB for foreign visitors.
Wat Suthat Thepwararam has a number of points of interest visitors should look out for:
- Giant Swing: 20 metre high teak frame built at the end of the 18th Century used for religious rites and as a giant swing. Locals used to swing from the frame in an annual festival which was discontinued because of the frequent fatal falls of the young men competing to see who could swing the highest.
- Assembly Hall: One of the oldest surviving structures from the period when the new Kingdom was established.
- Phra Si Sakyamuni: 8 metres high bronze Buddha statue believed to be over 800 years old which is located in the Assembly Hall.
- Artwork: The murals in the Assembly Hall are considered to be some of the best in Thailand.
