Fodor's Expert Review Wat Mangkhon Kamalawat

Chinatown Historical

In classic Chinese style, this 150-year-old temple has a glazed ceramic roof topped with fearsome dragons. Known in Chinese as Leng Noi Yee, the central shrines contain not only statues of Buddha but other art that incorporate Confucian and Taoist elements. The wat is especially colorful during Chinese New Year, when thousands of Thais visit the temple to burn incense to pay respect and make merit.
