Wat Saket - Golden Mountain Temple stands on an artificial hill, overlooking the entire Bangkok.
It's history dates back to Ayutthaya era and was renovated by the King Rama I in the 19 th century.
The climb to the mountain is easy and can be done by almost anyone.
The stair are surrounded by small waterfalls, trees and exotic plants, with hidden statues of Buddha and Indian gods.
|The stair are wet and slippery, so be careful|
The climb is broken by a terrace with some traditional bells. Don't forget to ring 3 times for good luck.
The view from the top is really impressive and it's a great stop to watch the sunset - so I was told, but unfortunately the sky was a bit cloudy, so I didn't have a chance to admire it. Maybe you will be more lucky.
