The Amazing Wat Asokaram in Bangkok
If you’re searching for a spiritual abode away from downtown Bangkok’s hustle and bustle but don’t want to venture too far out from the city, then Wat Asokaram (วัดอโศการาม) Buddhist temple in Samut Prakan province could be a place for you.
Wat Asokaram (วัดอโศการาม) is a major Buddhist monastic community located right the mouth of the Chao Phraya River, housing a large community of monks, nuns, and laity. The temple features a very large prayer hall reaching 2 to 3 stories high, with plenty of room for peaceful prayers and meditation inside.
Due to its height, Wat Asokaram’s main prayer hall tends to be comfortable and breezy throughout most of the day.
