Fantastic views once the near vertical steps have been climbed. Not for those with a fear of heights

This temple is on the other side of the river of the Grand Palace and Wat Po. A pleasant ferry ride across and you can start exploring. The stairway to the top of the temple is quite steep and any little kids or older folks will find it a struggle. Once your up there though you will love the views and the cool breeze in the shade.

Highly recommended and great to be at either in the morning or the afternoon.

I didn't catch this one at dawn, but it was still impressive. Ornate designs and patterns keep your eyes moving all over. A do not miss spot if you are out Wat hopping.
