WAT PATHUMWANARAM - BANGKOK

Updated from our initial post on www.chimburi.com at Wat Pathumwanaram

Since 2001 we have been coming regularly to Wat Pathumwanaram and have seen the changes around the temple. It is now barely visible amongst all the high rise hotels and shopping malls, yet it is still a hidden gem in the middle of Bangkok and a great place for a quiet time and meditation.  We saw several tourists visiting the temple, but it was also nice to see that there was still no "foreigner admission charge" here, unlike other temples. So far it still seems to be a place of meditation rather than a tourist attraction, which is very nice to see.
