Bangkok - the city of angels, known for its fast-paced lifestyle is also the home of the few best temples in Thailand. The temples are also a unique part of the city’s heart and soul. A visit to Bangkok is incomplete without visiting these temples because apart from being religious places, these temples have a significant cultural and religious importance in Thai history. The architecture is stunning and the glittering design like no other. Imagine a large number of bits of shaded glass and ceramics adorned with mind-boggling structures gilded in glaring gold - you're without a doubt in a City of Angels!
The best time to visit these temples is usually early morning because mostly its less crowded and peaceful then. The temples ('wats') are tourist spots as well as have a significant influence on Buddhist traditions. Monks live in the temple buildings, wake up around 04:00, take care of prayers and duties and after that gather food and necessities from common individuals in the city. If you are up very early in Bangkok you will see monks strolling around, wearing saffron-colored robes. This everyday aid custom (called 'tak baht') happens all over Thailand and is a piece of the Buddhist way of thinking of giving and improving legitimacy to accomplish a real existence past this one.
