A splendid temple located by Khaosan road. The complex is vast and the main temple is something to admire. The temple is free to enter but remember to dress decently before entering the complex.

The main hall at Wat Chana Songkhram is beautiful. The small buildings were under renovation. We went in the temple while the monks prayed. We were not allowed near the praying hall.

We arrived at our hotel and thought we should take a walk around the block and get our bearings. We ended up finding this cute & quiet little temple. Which ended up being much bigger than we were expecting. There was no entrance fee. You do have to dress respectfully. As I didn't think we would be going into a temple I had a dress on that didn't cover my knees but I could borrow a wrap free of charge so I could go in. The people at this wat were so lovely and friendly. Mostly locals & Monk's.

While speaking to one of the locals we found out that Wat Chana Songkram is an important royal temple and it is an old second-class royal monastery built in the Ayutthaya era. Wat Chana Songkhram means ‘victory of war temple’.

Wat Chana Songkram is one of an important royal temple, it was built back in Aydhaya era and was majorly renovated by Somdej Phrabovornrajjao Maha Surasinghanat, a younger brother of King Rama the 1st, the founder of Chakri dynasty and Bangkok around 235 years ago. He was appointed as the 2nd King when his brother took over the throne then.
The title of the temple Chana Songkram means winning war, considering as a good name to commemorate the Siam-Burma war during that period. It was told that the amulet shirt from the 2nd King himself was kept inside the main buddha image of the temple.
The construction and design of this temple is unique and different from a royal palace style, locally we called this the art Wang Na ( front palace) style. For those who are interested in Thai art, you may also observe this at the National museum which was a former palace of the second king and at Wat Mahatat.
There is a special room dedicated to be a storage place of the second king descendants' remaining, this room has been closed and concealed to outsider in the past few decades. During my latest visit, I found that the room is now open to public. This is one of the interesting point to visit to see how the royal house keeps their ancestors remaining. Most of the royal family members remaining are kept in the royal palace and closed to the public. This is one of a kind and worth to visit if you stay around Khao san area. Check it out.

Quite big Buddhist temple complex in between khaosan and Praathit road. No entrance fee for visitors. Main temple has some pretty paintings depicting life of Lord Buddha and plenty of golden statues. Since it’s not as popular as more famous ones in the vicinity (virtually no tour groups), it’s quite laid back and quiet.

Not located in the quietest area but you will quickly forget about the noise when you enter this beautiful temple with a huge statue of Bouddha as per tradition and many other little ones around it. The decorations all around the temple are simply stunning!!

The beautiful temples and buildings that make up this complex attract many visitors and local Thai as well, who come to pray and make offerings. There is a very quiet and traditional neighborhood just to the west as you head towards the river, which is interesting to walk around.

Went on the last day of Songkran festival, so got to see the temple in full use. Incredible artwork and architecture- worth a visit if you're nearby.

Saw where the monks live. Their sleeping quarters Showers. Where they eat and pray. Construction allowed us to wander through areas not usually open. Interesting
