Gothic-Church-Like Buddhist Temple : Wat Niwet Thamaprawat
Day 2 – July 28, 2011
Continuing my previous post about Bang Pa-In Summer Palace, the next destination I went was Wat Niwet Thamaprawat. From many articles that I read, I found out that King Rama V built this temple with architectural design of Gothic cathedral with spiky eaves and stained glass windows. Well, I guess I’ll tell the rest of the story with these pictures below. Have a good reading 🙂
For you who want to visit Wat Niwet, it is free of charge to enter this monastery. But when I visited this place, it was really quiet. Seriously!. Oh yeah, one more thing. When you enter the Wat Niwet, there will probably be a monk sitting there but unfortunately he can’t speak English. You can also donate some money in a box placed there and later take a souvenir of mini golden Buddha.
If you want to know more about it, you can consult here or here.
From this place, I continued my journey to Ayutthaya, to visit Wat Mahathat and Wat Ratchaburana. So, keep coming back 🙂
