This is a Mahayana Buddhist temple in Bangkok. In fact, it is a temple of Chinese belief. This place is located near Chinatown, so there are many people. I thought it was a relatively small temple, but it was really lively.
This temple did not expect so many people. This is a traditional Chinese Buddhist temple dominated by the Chinese community. It has a main hall and is built on a large scale. Then it can be regarded as a microcosm of a Chinese temple. .
This place is in the center of Chinatown. It is a 1km walk from Hua Lamphong Railway Station. There are many small wing rooms in the temple, but the main hall is very large and very spectacular. I found that if you settle down and listen to the monks sing, it is really beneficial to relax your body and mind. Visitors are not required to take off their shoes to enter. This magnificent Chinese Buddhist temple is often overlooked, replaced by the more famous Wat Traimit (Golden Buddha Temple) nearby, but when it comes to the interior and atmosphere of the (temple), Longlian Temple is actually much more impressive. To avoid the crowds in the nearby Chinatown, it is best to come about an hour before closing.
The Longlian Temple Wat Mangkon Kamalawat was built in 1871 as the Chinese faith center and the continuation master who founded this temple. Because of his contribution to Buddhism, he was highly affirmed by the fifth emperor, as the monk title of the great monk of the Huazong monk in Thailand. In the Longlian Temple, there are three treasures of Buddha, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, Dharma Protector, Huatuo and so on. During the Lunar New Year, the temple's incense is even more prosperous!
This is really a very lively temple, and when I passed by, it was crowded with people. From the point of view of artistic value, the entire temple does not have much appreciation, but it may be more effective, so more people will come to worship. In addition, it is located in a lively and prosperous urban area, so it will naturally appear crowded.
Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, previously known as Wat Leng Noei Yi, is the largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand.It hosts celebrations of a number of year-round events, including Chinese New Year, and the annual Chinese vegetarian festival.
It is located in the district of Pom Prap Sattru Phaiin the city's Chinatown, in a courtyard off Charoen Krung Road, accessed by an alleyway. It is served by Wat Mangkon MRT station located in front of the temple.
