This mammoth wiharn is close to the river, and if you ever cross that path on your visit, this place is hard to miss.
Built by Rama the third, this temple has been around since the 19th century. During this time, China and its trading business were at its best, and the Chinese style and structure were imitated in many places around the world. Wat Kalayanamit is no different, as this building in Thailand too, has a few Chinese influences in its structure.
As stated above, thought the wiharn has traditional Thai architecture, you can see a few Chinese semblances as you go in, like the Ubosot and tiny pavilions.
How to get there
Taking a Bangkok cruise tour is a given when you visit the city, and the best way to get to this Wat is by boat too. Get in touch with Anantara Cruises, for example, and plan your cruise ahead of time.
When to go
Bangkok is a place that is attractive and has things to do all around the year. The peak season for tourism is from November to March though, and you will be able to avail many seasonal offers if you choose to travel then.
