BANGKOK | When it comes to Bangkok’s Buddhist temples, Wat Sutthi Wararam isn’t one that appears on most people’s lists. Indeed, it wasn’t on my list when I visited, rather I chanced upon it while walking to nearby BKK Social Club. I’m glad I found it, as it’s one of my favourite temples in the city.
What sets Wat Sutthi Wararam apart from other similarly sized, small temples in Bangkok, is its role not just as a temple, but as a contemporary art gallery. Gracing the beautiful gilded walls of the temples exterior, you’ll find intricate, colourful murals, presenting Buddhist motifs and tales, in a modern way.
Walk inside the temple, and you’ll be treated to more contemporary artworks, also inspired by Buddhism.
