Bibendum
This temple, a delightful mix of Western and Eastern influences, is the work of an Italian, Hercules Manfredi. Built at the very end of the 19C, Wat Benchamapophit boasts Carrara-marble walls crowned with pagoda-style roofs, while its interior houses Victorian stained-glass windows depicting scenes from Siamese mythology. Don't miss the attractive collection of Buddhas in the galleries surrounding the cloisters, assembled by King Rama V (1868-1910), and the standing Buddha which can be seen in the centre of the courtyard.
