After visiting Wat Pak Nam Phasi Charoen we visited Wat Khun Chan (Wat Waramartaya Punthasatharam) which is adjacent to Wat Pak Nam Phasi Charoen, just crossing another canal. Much less visitors, many visitors to Wat Pak Pam Phasi Charoen might not be aware that it is very nearby. Wat Khun Chan is about glitter and colour, dragons, tigers, lions, other colourful creatures, and more dragons. Several Buddha images, sitting on 3 elephants, laying, standing, a mixture of various architectures, Thai, Burmese, Chinese, Indian. Definitely worthwhile a visit.

The temple is best visited via a klong tour with a long tail boat. It is a bit remote, but offers a nice inside from the north of Thailand. Right now, tourist flow is minimal.

Wat Khun Chan (Wat Waramartaya Punthasatharam) is a lesser known and less visited temple by tourists. It is located in Bangkok in the Talat Phlu sub-district of the Thonburi district at Soi Terdthai 28. It was built around 1827-1837. The place is characterized by a mixture of Thai, Burmese and other neighboring styles of Buddhism. This combination gave a unique effect. In terms of architecture, the temple stands out and a visit to it provides a lot of impressions. I can confirm this from my own experience. I visited the temple twice and both times I was the only visitor.

Have no idea why more people don’t know about this and it’s so low on the things to do in Bangkok. Stumbled upon this after visiting Wat Pak Nam and was in awe!

This temple is not one that's commonly visited by tourists. It's next to the river and the abbott was very friendly.

We went for a walk today and found this wat,as if you could miss it. It's huge as far as wats go. Some are cool but not as big as this one was. Very ornate,big statues and chintas. Saw the clouds coming in and thought it was going to be just a sprinkle, and then Boom, torrential down pour, like a July August monsoon rain storm. In seconds the gutters pouring rain water. It was a great sanctuary for us during the shower. 20mn later we were back on the road.
Cool Must visit

I visited this temple, which can be seen from the outer corridor of Wat Paknam. It is on the opposite bank across the canal. My first impression was that it was flashy. It is not a relaxing place. It is a good place to stop by after visiting Wat Paknam. There were water boats going back and forth on the canal, and I watched them for about 30 minutes. I never got bored of watching it. On the river on the Wat Khun Chan side, there was a tourist boat dock for general public. There was a fare table displayed, but I didn't look at it. When I asked if I wanted to take a boat from here to Wat Arun, I was told it would be a chartered boat and would cost 1,000 baht. If there was someone else sharing the boat, it would be split, but it was expensive for one person, so I gave up. Apparently there are no water buses for general public use.
