Highly recommended. Way better the Grand Palace. You can see there huge laying Buddha and whole complex of sanctuary. The entrance ticket is 200 B. You can easily spend there 2 hours. Walking distance to the rest of main attractions on Bangkok
This temple was huge!. There was so many beautiful things to look at. I spent around two hours but could have easily spent another hour. The reclining Buddha was awesome. It was housed in a beautiful temple with artwork covering the entire inside of the building. Women are required to cover their ankles and shoulders but they have scarves they borrow out if you do not have anything. It is definitely worth a visit.
