Wat Saket

Wat Sakhet

Wat Saket Rajaworamahavihara is just below the Golden Mount. It was build during the reign of Rama I and is still a monastery. In the main building is a large image of Buddha from Ayutthaya. This is a very quiet temple and it‘s architecture and design represents total harmony. Wat Saket means "to wash the hair" which refers to the Phra Krayasanan Ceremony held here by King Rama I. The eight boundary markers containing the sacred boundary stones are built in the form of elephant howdah and are considered masterpieces.
