Wat Suhatat BKK by InayatShah Wat Suhatat BKK by InayatShah
Location: Wat Suhatat, Bangkok, Thailand

Wat Suthat Thep Wararam  is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. It is a royal temple of the first grade, one of ten such temples in Bangkok (23 in Thailand). Construction was begun by King Rama I in 1807 (B.E. 2350). Further construction and decorations were carried out by King Rama II who helped carve the wooden doors, but the temple was not completed until the reign of King Rama III in 1847 (B.E.2390). This temple contains the Buddha image Phra Sri Sakyamuni which has been moved from Sukhothai province. At the lower terrace of the base, there are 28 Chinese pagodas which mean the 28 Buddhas born on this earth. Wat Suthat also contains Phra Buddha Trilokachet in the Ubosot (Ordinary Hall) and Phra Buddha Setthamuni  in the Sala Kan Parian (Meeting Hall). In 2005, the temple was submitted to UNESCO for consideration as a future World Heritage Site.
