About Giant Swing

The Giant Swing is a religious structure at the entrance of Wat Suthat. Standing at the entrance of Wat Suthat, the Giant Swing can be spotted from a distance. It is one of the main tourist attractions of Bangkok and was also used as part of Thanksgiving old Brahmin ceremony during the rice harvest season. According to the locals, it is believed the end of this giant tower leads to heaven. During the ceremony, the young men were expected to suspend mid-air and hold a bag of silver coins using their teeth. But due to several deaths and fatal injuries, the ceremony discontinued in 1932. In 2005, the Giant Swing and Wat Suthat together was suggested as a future UNESCO World Heritage Site.
