BRISTOL POTTER

The Chanasongkram Temple, a royal temple in the heart of Bangkok, offers free admission

If it weren't for the fact that I visited as many times as I stayed nearby, I would hardly believe that such a serene place exists right next to Khao San Road. Nor would I believe that there is such a famous royal temple near the bustling Grand Palace that is open to the public for free. Chanasongkram Temple, wat chanasongkram, meaning 'celebration of war victory', was built in the 17th century and has a history of over 400 years. Luang Pho Pae, the foremost of the three great monks, once studied scriptures and Buddhist doctrines here. The most recent time this temple came into our view was when the royal consort Sineenat dressed up to attend an official event here. The temple is tranquil and simple, with magnificent and grand architecture. The contradiction between detachment from the world and engagement in worldly affairs finds a wonderful balance and unity here.
