Going to 9 meaningful temples : Good trip in Bangkok

As you may know, almost thai people are Buddhist. So, there are many temples around the country. About 2-3 years ago the tourism authority of thailand have established the project " Praying in 9 meaningful temples". Today, I'll show you the name of them. And before that I have to let you know that something that sounds strange for you, but this is what thai people believe. If you understand so.................let's go



1.Temple of the Emerald Buddha

This is the temple that everyone should know, it's like a signature of Bangkok. The people who go to this temple believe that if they go, they will receive many of asset.



2.The Temple of the Reclining Buddha

The Temple of the Reclining Buddha or Wat Pho, located next to the temple of the emerald buddha. The word "Pho" in Thai means a kind of the tree. So, many people believe that they will secure and peaceful like they stand under the tree, if they go to this temple.



3.Temple of the Dawn
The temple of the dawn or Wat Pho located on another side of Chao Phraya river, the opposite side of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Its meaning in Thai is "Sun" that shining and make people's life more clear.



4.Wat Chana Songkram This temple located in Chana songkram, Phra Makorn district. The word "Chana" in Thai means "to win or to beat something" so people who go there believe that they will beat over any obstruction or enemies.



5.Wat Kalayanamitr
The word "Kalayanamitr" means "good friend", because its meaning is sounds favourable so people who want a good friends come and pray here.



6.Wat Rakung
This temple located near Siriraj Hospital and The temple of the dawn. The word "rakung" meaning is "bell". People who go there believe thier name will renowed like a sound of a bell. In this temple, there are many bells like thier name, the visitors are likely to hit the bell for thier good luck too.



7.Wat Suthat Thepwararam
Its meaning sounds like having a good vision, so many people who want to have a good vision usually come here.



8.The City Pillar Shrine
Established at the same time of the establishment of Bangkok. The people usually go there because its name sounds good and powerful.



9.Tiger Shrine
If you go to this place, you may doubt that why many peoples there. This because of the word "tiger" sounds powerful so people like to go there and they will powerful too.

OK, this is the end of this topic. I usually recommend this trip and you will have a new and good experience.

Great and quite interesting post. I never knew that there are so many temples in Bangkok but what amazed me more is the fact that there are so many different places where people can pray for different things. This could not be seen of many other places in the world.

I've decided to visit one of the temples in Bangkok too, during my stay and vacation there. One of my friend referred that place to me. He had said a lot about those temples.
