Wat Suwannaram

Wat Suwannaram is a large Royal Temple on the banks of the Bangkok Noi Canal, its full name is Wat Suwannaram Ratchaworawihan, originally it was called Wat Thong and was built during the reign of King Rama I.
Many Burmese prisoners of war from the Bangkaew Camp were executed here so probably not much good for karma and stuff like that.
In the past this Temple was also used for Royal Cremations until the reign of King Rama V.
Wat Suwannaram is famed for the quality of its mural paintings inside the buildings, these have stood against the test of time and are still in fine condition for early 19th century which is the early Rattanakosin Period.
