Bibendum
Bangkok boasts more than 400 wat, each with its own distinctive characteristics. The 19C Wat Sathut houses the largest wihan (main chapel) in the Thai capital, which is home to an imposing 8m-high gilded bronze Buddha from Sukhothai. The frescoes depicting the 28 former lives of the Perfect Being are also of interest. Nearby stands the red teak portico known as the Giant Swing, which was once used by Brahminical monks during rituals held in honour of Shiva.
