Wat Ratchapradit

Wat Ratchapradit

The full name of this temple is Wat Ratchapradit Sathitmahasimaram Ratchaworawihan. It is located just between the Grand Palace and Wat Ratchabopit. A rather quiet and relatively small temple and a good place to get away from the tuk-tuk drivers for some rest. The temple was built in 1864 as the first temple of the Dhammayutika sect.  There are also eight stone pillars which are surmounted by a carving of the Buddhist Wheel of Law, which is reflected in the term Mahasimaram within the temple's name.
