ATTRACTIONS IN & AROUND BANGKOK
||The temple is
located on Fuang Nakhon Rd. near Wat Pho. Built by King Rama
V in 1869, it was in keeping with tradition that
each monarch constructed a temple to mark his
reign. The temple is a mixture of local and
western styles, showing an awakening interest in
new ideas and a desire to experiment with them.
The exterior of the chapel is in Thai style but
the interior is decorated in European style.
