History 


Wat Yannawa (Thai: วัดยานนาวา) is an ancient old Buddhist temple (wat) dating back to the Ayutthaya period (1350-1767).
 located in the Sathon district of Bangkok on Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok, Thailand. It has a unique junk shaped chedi and viharn built by King Rama III. The idea behind the construction was that Chinese junk was quickly disappearing and the pagoda should show present descendants what it looked like. The temple was originally known as Wat Khok Khwai (วัดคอกควาย; "temple of the buffalo stable") during Ayutthaya era and Wat Khok Krabue (วัดคอกกระบือ) during Thonburi and early Bangkok era before the construction of the chedi.

Originally called Wat Khok Khwai (means buffalo stable) and later renamed to Wat Khok Krabue (same meaning but more polite language) when it was designated to be the royal temple in the reign of King Rama I of Rattanakosin Kingdom (1782-1809). In the reign of King Rama III, (1824-1851), the giant Chinese junk with two large pagodas on its deck was built to commemorate the prosperous trade between Thai and China during that period, and that was why the temple was renamed to Wat Yannawa (boat temple). Apart from the unique Chinese junk with pagodas, the temple also consists of the statue of Kind Rama III, ancient bell tower, ubosot, and the office and library with exquisite architectures. You can visit Wat Yannawa by taking exit 4 and walk for just a few minutes until you see Soi Charoen Krung 52, the temple is located right next to that Soi

This massive white boat is sure to catch your eye long before you arrive at the temple’s doorstep and is unique to what Bangkok’s temples normally look like. You will also notice its glistening rooftop spires. Inside the vessel, you will find a Buddha image covered in gold leaf and a room dedicated to relics, or the physical remains, believed to be from Buddha. These relics are believed to have magical powers, and often times you will see Thai people praying to them. There is also a meditation room, a bookshop and a shrine room in this temple.


try to be around the front courtyard at sunset to gaze of the colour display of the chedi and Junk as well as the courtyard decorations


Meaning of Yan Nawa


A very spiritual person who often relies on intuition for decision making.
Your mind is rich and deep, but often closed for other people. You sometimes need seclusion in order to gain clarity about what is going on in your life. - read more about the Personality of Yannawa



Wat Yannawa is one of the older temples in Bangkok, built during the time of Ayudhaya Kingdom, at that time called Wat Kok Khwai, known as “the boat temple”. 
Its shape is distinctively of a Chinese junk vessel, a 19th century sailing ship.
