An outstanding authentic historical architecture of Thai-Chinese structure in the middle of modern Bangkok.
Wat Suan Plu is a small temple located on the side street which leads to one of the bigger tourist hotels the Shangri-La 

Community temples are plentiful but this has some eye catching points at Wat Suan Plu in the Creative District
Many travellers pass up on this unassuming temple due to presence of much more distracting places, slow down, enter the compound and look carefully. 

You will see wondrous features that deserve closer zoom on your camera. The monk’s quarters and other buildings surrounding the main temple shrine hall are built of wood. A closer inspection yields many detailed carvings that reflect some Thai characteristics. The main shrine hall may look like other temples in architecture but realize that it is actually more heavily adorned. The gable ends are vivid.

If you step back, note how the temple has a strange blue hue. Due to an odd choice of using blue mirror tiles rather than the classic gold, this temple now exudes more repose than others.

The monk's quarters and all the other buildings except the bot (main chapel) are all made of wood. The main "merit making" halls feature some finely detailed carved panels set in plainly painted clapboard sides. It is all very clean, and rather quiet for someplace in the middle of things. The temple has a school, so if you visit during a weekday, it might be quite a different scene, with young children running about.



While the old monk's quarters and merit-making halls are truly unique, the Bot is not without its own charms. While traditional in general design, the decorative features are rather atypical. There is much less use of gold on the exterior than usual -- almost none in fact. Instead of the usual gold-tinted mirrored tiles, this one features mostly blue ones. The gable ends feature finely detailed Asparas and Naga figures which are much more prominent that generally seen in Bangkok temples. The exterior is newly restored and the interior is currently undergoing restoration (therefore, its closed to visitors).

All-in-all, Wat Suan Plu is well worth a visit.
