About Wat Saket

Dating back to Ayutthaya era the temple was renovated and renamed by King Rama 1. The temple also called as  the 'Temple of The Golden Mount' is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, and is best known for its 80-meter high hill and the gilded stupa which enshrines the "relics of the Buddha." Visitors climb the monument's 318 steps to witness a line of prayer bells which worshippers strike to emit a resounding tone that seems to add serenity and positivity all around. The summit has a panoramic view with colored lanterns, decorative flags, food vendors, fairground games. It is a prominent landmark and very famous pilgrimage. Climbing on to the top one can see a loosely coiled snake. The visitors are bound to be greeted by a wall of bells and panorama of historic Bangkok.
