About Wat Saket

Popularly known as the Golden Mount or Phu Khao Thong, Wat Saket is a Buddhist Temple in a Pom Prap Sattru Phai district of Bangkok. The monument is a low hill crowned with a gleaming gold chedi. Spread in 58 meters of area, it is home to a Buddha relic. The temple also features many large green trees and typical Buddhist monuments. Dating back to the Ayutthaya period (1350- 1767 AD), the temple can only be reached by climbing 300 steps. The temple is built on an artificial man-made hill and is the most well-known landmark in Bangkok. This sacred pilgrimage site's path is well-paved encircling the chedi like a loosely coiled snake. The 300 steps climb is relatively easy if you avoid going at midday or during peak summer months. The Golden Mount is also famous for its Annual Temple Fair. The enormous temple fair is usually held in November, following an annual Buddha relic worshipping ceremony. During the fair, the golden chedi is draped in a large bright-red cloth, and a candlelit procession up to the top marks the opening of the weeklong fun fair.
