Wat Pathum Wanaram วัดปทุมวนาราม ราชวรวิหาร

The Wat Pathum Wanaram is a Buddhist temple in the midst of Bangkok's shopping district - right between the Siam Paragon and the Central World shopping malls.  
It was founded in 1867 by King Mongkut in honor of his wives. (Well one of his 32 wives - the one who gave birth to the throne heir, the next king Chulalongkorn).

What makes this temple so special is the location - all around it is a bustling commercial hub, but this temple is a place of quiet and serenity, you can enjoy a peaceful stroll over the compound and see people practicing walking meditation, and they do teach meditation in this temple for interested laypeople too.

about

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wat Pathum Wanaram seen from Baiyoke Tower 2
Ubosot of Wat Pathum Wanaram

Wat Pathum Wanaram (Thai: วัดปทุมวนาราม) is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located in the district Pathum Wan, between the two shopping malls Siam Paragon and CentralWorld, and across the street of Siam Square.

The temple was founded in 1857 by King Mongkut (Rama IV) as a place of worship near his Sa Pathum Palace. At the time of its founding the area was still only rice fields, only accessible via the Khlong Saen Saeb. The temple is a third class royal temple of the Thammayut Nikaya order. The full name of the temple is Wat Pathum Wanaram Ratcha Wora Viharn (วัดปทุมวนารามราชวรวิหาร).

The ashes of Thai Royal Family members in the line of Prince Mahidol Adulyadej are interred at the temple.

Among the various buildings of the temple is a sala partially reconstructed from the crematorium of the late Princess Mother of Thailand. The crematorium was a rare example of ancient craftsmanship featuring ornate stencils and lacquered sculptures. Known in Thai as phra men, it represents Mount Meru, the heavenly abode of the gods.
