Wat Tha Phra
Wat Tha Phra Bangkok Reviews
The temple that's not in your Lonely Planet Mar 02, 2011
The people tried to build a beautifull home for their buddha, but when it burned down they believed it was because it was 'to much' for him.
What was left of the original walls can still be seen when you take a look in the main building...
(At least that's what my family told me, my grandmother used to have a shop in this soi #268, the sign at the house still hangs 'till this day, Raan Sangartid(but then in Thai))
(near royal Barges museum)
True or not, I have always loved the story...
