Wat Suthat is one of Bangkok’s hidden gems. As it is less popular among tourists, stepping into Wat Suthat is like you are leaving the bustling world behind and now in a peaceful heaven. The main ordination hall sits at the center is where the sacred Phra Sri Sakayamunee Buddha image, relocated from Wat Mahathat in Sukhothai, is enshrined. It is one of the largest ordination halls in Thailand with 72.25-meter-high ceiling, completed with stunning wall paintings. Surrounding the ordination hall is Phra Wiharn Khot terrace where 156 beautiful Buddha statues are displayed. In front of Wat Suthat is the Giant Swing, a Brahman religious structure.
