Wat Hua Lamphong, Bangkok




Situated just moments away from Bangkok's most infamous red light district, Wat Hua Lamphong is a fascinating, modern Thai Buddhist temple, one that I visit often whenever I am in Thailand.
Rich and constantly refurbished, the temple is always busy, as is the small Chinese shrine attached to it, with its special cult of the tiger, to whom devotees offer raw cuts of pork belly.
This is a little video of some of the highlights of the temple.
