Wat Mangkon Kamalawat

Charoen Krung Rd Phone: 66 2 222-3975


 It is a Mahayana Buddhist temple, the school of Buddhism that most Chinese follow, and it has mixed with other Chinese practices like Confucianism and Taoism. It is in Southern Chinese style built in 1871. There are plenty of statues and shrines inside, most interesting is the part right after the second entrance. Four golden statues will greet you, each with a symbolic object: a parasol, a pagoda, a snake's head and a mandolin. It is one of Chinatown's liveliest temples with many Thai-Chinese praying and burning incense.
