Wat Chakrawat

Wat Chakrawat, Bangkok 2010

Wat Chakkrawat (full name: Wat Chakkrawat Rachawat Woramahawihan) is a Buddhist temple in the Samphanthawong district of Bangkok. Although the temple area is relatively small, it houses a large number of monks and novices and has some different architectural styles.

The only monastery in Thailand and probably even worldwide, where you can see crocodiles. Three of the rather well-fed reptiles snooze in a pool. Thais do not come because of the crocodiles, but to pray in front of a shadow of Buddha in a grotto.
