Wat Prok

Chinese grave yard behind Wat Prok

Wat Prok is located in Sathon or Sathorn, east of the Taksin Bridge. It is a rather quite temple but interesting because of itís architecture. It includes three buildings which represent the three main religions. One looks like a Christian church, one is build like an Islamic mosque and of course one represents a Buddhist building. I guess they just left off a building which might look like a Hindu Temple because there is one right across the street.

On the way to Wat Prok, one passes through an old Chinese graveyard along the side of the street and there is also one right behind the temple, from which one has a good view of the temple and the skyline of this part of Bangkok. Remember that this is only blocks from Bangkok's most notorious nightlife!
