    Which temple is this?

    Someone posted this photo from an internet site on facebook. It is said to be from 1866. I'm curious about which temple it is, assuming it is a temple. There is a rather western looking building across the river with a steeple which is a possible landmark. I would think buildings such as these would still be in existence today. I asked Mr. X and he believes the temple is one near Wat Arun.

    My curiosity is peaked! Does anyone have any ideas?

    Very good detective work, Oeshidez! Thank you.

    I guess it's been too many years since I've visited Wat Arun, and it's time to go back for a refresher course in Thai temples!

    Thanks to Mr. Google, I also found this information: http://www.sacred-destinations.com/t...ngkok-wat-arun
