Want to climb this “Golden Mountain!

Wat Saket is best known for the Golden Mount, an 80-meter high man-made hill crowned with a golden stupa. Before climbing 300 steps to get to the structure, notice the unusual cemetery at the base. Wat Saket used to be the capital crematorium; it became a dumping ground for around 600,000 plague victims! When you ascend to the top, visit the Buddha relic housed within the chedi and marvel at the panoramic vista of old Bangkok!

Hike up to Wat Saket and witness the Golden Mount, a burial site rumored to contain some of Buddha’s remains. The temple is built on an 80-meter high man-made hill, which was once the highest point in all of Bangkok. Walk up 300 steps to reach the peak where the vast and panoramic views of the city await you. The foot of the temple below is another historically significant spot—former plague victims were dumped and buried here during one of Bangkok’s darker period. Be warned—rumors abound that the area may be haunted!

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.
