Gong Wu Shrine or Guan or Kuan ศาลเจ้ากวนอู (คลองสาน) 
Between the Princess Mother Memorial Park and the Chao Phraya River stands the Guan Yu Shrine, dedicated to a second-century Chinese general who became an iconic god of war thanks to his role in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms epic. 

Many travellers watch the shrine’s three-storey pagoda drift past when cruising on the Chao Phraya River, but few make the effort to actually visit.

First established by Hokkien immigrants in the 18th century, the main shrine features two small images of Guan Yu with the usual red face and long beard draped in red lights, flowers, incense and colourful paintings. Strings of red lanterns stretch across a courtyard to the pagoda donning dragons and more Chinese-style murals. Inside you’ll find images of Kuan Yin (goddess of compassion), Mi-Lo-Fo (laughing Buddha) and Amitabha (future Buddha), but the highlight is the river view punctuated by lanterns from the top floor.

Taking you through a Chinese-Thai neighbourhood with cobblestone streets and murals of dragons painted on the walls of old shophouses, the walk to the park and shrine is also worth a mention. Despite being close to two bridges and some busy roads, this is a rare quiet pocket of life with a hidden-away, non-touristy feel that isn’t easy to come by in the Big Mango.
