Enjoy the beautiful and interesting river sights of Bangkok, including many temples. Take a self-guided boat trip on the regular express boat on the Chao Phraya river from the Phra Athit Pier (near Khao San Road) to the Sathorn pier (BTS Taksin Bridge) or vice versa. Find a map in the sidebar >>>

Wat Rakhang

Wat Rakhang (which means "bell temple") got its name from an ancient bell unearthed during construction. The temple dates back to the Ayutthaya era and was upgraded to a royal temple during the reign of King Taksin. There are many bells still in the temple, but the original one was moved to the Royal Grand Palace.

Wat Rakhang is among the nine sacred temples that Thais visit to make merit on auspicious occasions.
