There is no metro taking you directly to Wat Benchamabophit. 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.
