GPS : 13.76589675,100.51408768 (See on the map)


The Temple of Benchamabophit or marble temple, not far from the Palace or Dusit Zoo Winmamek is very pretty with its small pool and deck wrought iron red in the garden outside his court and not forgetting the beautiful seated Buddha that it houses the most photogenic. A place often quiet and relaxing because little or no visit by the groups. Note that the right is the building where the monks live.

The nicest way to reach the temple by public transport is to go to Hua Lamphong railway station accessible by MRT metro and then get on the free river shuttles that run on the canal located along the station on the left (see details and times here). You then get off at the Nakhon Sawan pier and you will have about ten minutes to walk to reach the temple. Otherwise, by bus, lines 72 and 503 stop near Wat Benchamabophit.
