Wat Hua Lamphong is nice Buddhist temple located on Rama 4, just beyond the entrance to Silom. The temple is one of the newer Wats in Bangkok and therefore rarely visited by tourists. The temple complex is nicely incorporated in modern buildings around.
The elephants and the tiered umbrellas decorations indicate that this is a Royal Wat. The four-gable roves on the central roof spire are decorated by the winged Garudas. Each pavilion has one or more Buddha images for veneration. In the middle of the temple there is Meru or Crematorium. The temple is often visited by local people for all kinds of celebrations.
