This temple was built during the reign of King Rama III in 1846. Its main attraction is its architecturally unique Loha Prasat, which stands 36-meters high with 37 surrounding spires. Next to the temple is an area for welcoming important foreign guests and a memorial statue of King Rama III. The temple has a well-known market selling Buddhist amulets, or magic charms, in all shapes and sizes. These are believed to protect the wearer from physical harm or are considered 'love charms'. Admission is free, and the temple's full name is Wat Ratchanatdaram Worawihan.
