Absolutely stunning. An oasis of calm in the chaos of Bangkok. The overgrown cemetery at the base was beautiful.

This was our favourite temple in all of Bangkok. Go before sunset and you will get some memorable views. The price was 50 Bath/person. Remember to dress appropriately (cover knees and shoulders).
