Wat Bowonniwet is frequented by followers of the Thammayut sect, which is a version of Thai Buddhism. Colloquially called “Wat Bowon,” this is where kings and princes used to study and serve as monks. Admire the spectacular mural art in the temple’s ordination hall, designed to combine the best of Eastern and Western designs.
Sensō-ji (金龍山浅草寺, Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji) is an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. It is Tokyo's oldest temple, and one of its most significant. Formerly associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, it became independent after World War II.
Adjacent to the temple is a five-story pagoda, the Asakusa Shinto shrine, as well as many shops with traditional goods in the Nakamise-dōri.
When we went there there’s a lot of people. If you have kids and still riding a stroller, they have a lift so you can enter the temple.
I will recommend this place.
Missing Thailand 🇹🇭— the food, the shopping and the temples
Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is right behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha – it’s a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok.
You should also try their streetfoods— pad thai and mango sticky rice. Don’t forget to ride a tuktuk
