Wat Suan Phlu is a small temple located on Charoen Krung Road. Additionally, the attentive servers ensure that meals are served promptly. This temple serves as a quiet oasis in the midst of a busy area.

Likewise in the vicinity of Assumption Cathedral, Wat Suan Phlu offers a serene and tranquil atmosphere. Unfortunately, during my visit, the main chapel was closed, but I was able to appreciate the presence of a peaceful reclining Buddha without the usual crowds found at Wat Pho. Lastly however, I can only give it three stars as I was unable to explore the interior of the main chapel.
